Gold Coast Whale Watching

Winter signifies the beginning of the annual Gold Coast whale watching season with whales being sighted from late May right through to early November. The Gold Coast is the ideal location to view these amazing mammals with up to 7000 whales expected to make their way up the Queensland coast to the warmer waters to give birth before returning south once the newborns are strong enough. With a 6 month season, it is a great opportunity to view these majestic animals up close on a Gold Coast whale watching cruise or you may be lucky enough to see these animals from a number of Gold Coast vantage points as they cruise up the coastline. What better way to be a part of this amazing migration than to book some great Gold Coast accommodation at Bayview Apartments where the friendly managers are only too happy to recommend a whale watching cruise.
