Whale watching season is now upon us, and there’s no better place than Byron Bay to watch these magnificent creatures on their yearly migration northwards along the east coast of Australia. As Byron Bay is the most easterly point of Australia, it’s the perfect whale watching destination. At this time of year, you are almost guaranteed to see Humpbacks and various other whale species at any time of the day.

Whale watching in Byron Bay is a popular pass time over winter and Cape Byron provides the perfect elevated vantage point. Not only is it a beautiful place to visit you may even see a full breach from the ones who like to put on a show!

This year it is estimated that over 20,000 Humpback whales will make the migration from the summer feeding grounds of the Southern Ocean up to the sheltered breeding grounds of Hervey Bay, returning back down the coastline with their young.

Victoria’s At Wategos guests are taking advantage of seeing the whales from the doorstep of their accommodation (well, just about). The walking track around the Cape Byron headland is the perfect platform to see these spectacular sea creatures meander by – we would recommend an early morning walk to build up your appetite for the gourmet breakfasts being served at “Victoria’s Byron Bay”.

The whale watching season is sweet but short, so come and enjoy them with us at our seaside location Victoria’s at Wategos, or our country lodge accommodation at Victoria’s at Ewingsdale.

For bookings and current packages contact Victoria’s on 02 66 847 047 or check rates and availability here.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Victoria’s Byron Bay collection.
