Whale Season

Each year from late May, over 18,000 humpback whales migrate north from Antarctica




Each year from late May, approximately 18,000 humpback whales migrate north, travelling over 10,000 kilometres from Antarctica, past Sydney and further up Australia’s east coast to the Great Barrier Reef to feed and breed in the warmer subtropical waters. As the Antarctic waters warm for the summer months, the whales return to their southern home with their young.

Brisbane Whale Watching is the only whale watching provider close to Brisbane, in the Moreton Bay Region - departing from Redcliffe during the season commencing 2nd June 2018. Tangalooma Island Resort also offers accredited whale watching tours departing from Holt Street Wharf, North Brisbane.

The whales love stopping to play in the waters of Moreton Bay and can be watch from the beaches of Moreton Island as they migrate at this time of year, however to get up close and personal to these majestic mammals an eco-tour with Brisbane Whale Watching is recommended.
