Whale-watching around Warrnambool and Portland

Warrnambool is well known as one of the best spots in Australia to spot southern right whales from the shore during their winter calving (June to September). At Logans Beach, the special whale-watching platforms even have binoculars to help you get a good look. For a chance at seeing the largest animals on the planet – the awe-inspiring blue whales – head to Portland during December to May, when these 30-metre-long creatures can sometimes be spotted off Cape Nelson. They can occasionally be seen from the shore, but to get a good look you will need to join a boat, helicopter or light-plane tour. Call the Portland visitor centre for details.
