Stradbroke Island Whale Watching

Whale Watching on Stradbroke Island starts from June to November each year, the majestic humpback whales pass the North Gorge Headland on their annual migration from Antarctica to their calving grounds near the Great Barrier Reef. While the calves are still quite young, they begin their southern return journey passing close to the coast.

The North Gorge offers a breathtaking seascape and when the tide and sea conditions are right, air whistles through a blowhole - just like a spouting whale.

The best vantage points along the Headlands are within easy walking distance of the major resorts and camping grounds at Point Lookout. Be sure to stay to the designated walking tracks for your own safety.
