Whale Watching

Whale watching in the Shoalhaven

Join the epic adventure of Australia’s largest long distance swimmers!

It’s time to get Wild about Whales! Get out and explore your favourite stretches of the Shoalhaven coastline, and invite your friends and family to share the epic adventure of Australia’s largest long distance swimmers. 

With migration numbers increasing annually, you won’t be able to miss the whales this year as they swim north on their way to warmer waters, and then make the return trip with their new-born calves in tow.  

But it’s not all about the whales — there are seals, little penguins, dolphins and amazing birds including the spectacular albatross to see.  NSW is truly the marine wonderland of the southern hemisphere, and what makes it even better is that so much can be experienced from the shore.     

Start your adventure at http://www.wildaboutwhales.com.au/Top-spots/Nowra-and-Shoalhaven – find out about the whales migrating along our coastline, and discover the best spots in our national parks to see whales and enjoy other great coastal experiences and activities. 

Use the interactive map on the website and the smartphone app to track where whales have been spotted off the NSW coast during this year’s migration.  And if you see one yourself, let us know where and when by tweeting #whaleon to @wildaboutwhales – and watch your whale go live on the map. 

Share your photos and experiences of your coastal adventure on www.facebook.com/wildaboutwhales and learn how others are creating their own epic adventures.  There’s also up-to-the-minute news on the latest sightings, opportunities to win prizes, plus ideas to help you plan your next coastal adventure.
