You can’t beat whale watching for free on the Coast!
The annual humpback whale migration takes place from July to October with the best whale-spotting opportunities in October.
You can often see these amazing animals splashing about at sea or blasting water out of their blow holes from the beaches or vantage points like Point Perry, Point Arkwright, Mount Coolum and Mount Emu. Coolum is the best land-based whale watching spot on the Sunshine Coast, allowing for magnificent photographic opportunities. While you can see them with the naked eye, taking a pair of binoculars or a zoom lens for your camera will allow you greater detail.
For an unforgettable experience take a boat trip to get an up close whale encounter.
The sight of humpback whales breaching or tail slapping will take your breath away.
