Western Australia has one of the longest whale watching seasons in the world, following the epic annual migration of humpback, southern right whales and the rare blue whale, from the food-rich Southern Ocean to warm breeding grounds on the north Kimberley coast.
The season begins in May and finishes in December, watching the whales as they swim along the continental shelf, hugging the coastline. In some areas, the playful giants come so close to shore, you can see them clearly through your binoculars from vantage points and viewing towers along the coast.
Take a tour from Rottnest Island, Fremantle or Hillarys.
