Here in Coffs Coast paradise, we are once again in the midst of the great whale migration season (from early June to late October )as the shallow waters along our local coastline offer sanctuary and a place to frolic for majestic Humpback Whales.  After a summer of feeding on krill in Antarctic waters, these charismatic animals migrate north to sub-tropical waters where they mate and give birth – an  annual migration of up to 10 000 kilometres!

Find out how to deepen your connection to these magnificent yet vulnerable creatures and spend some time together over winter in this beautiful place we all share.
