Whale Watching

The Sunshine Coast is the ideal location to immerse yourself in the annual whale migration as it occurs along the east coast of Australia. Like clockwork, thousands of whales migrate to the beautiful warm waters of south-east Queensland every year, and there is no better place to be part of the action, than the Sunshine Coast. Whale watching tour boats are abundant, and excited guests experience multiple close-up encounters with these giants of the deep on a daily basis. Some tour boats, such as Whale One, allow visitors to swim with the whales – a truly unforgettable experience. Whale migration season is from July to October each year, as literally thousands of whales make the journey from Antarctica to the Sunshine Coast. So grab a ticket, jump on board, and get the camera (or snorkel) ready for the adventure of a lifetime.
