There's something just so amazing about getting close to the giants of our planet.
There is a real question about just who is watching who as the whales are known for putting on a show and having a good long look at us as well.
The Humpback migration happens up the east and west coasts of Australia from June to November each year and provides a wonderful opportunity to see the whales with some degree of certainty.
Whalesong cruises depart daily giving you plenty of time to admire these amazing creatures.
Some places are better than others and one of the best is Hervey Bay on the Fraser Coast. The following places offer accommodation either on the coast or on Fraser Island and can organise a day out watching the whales for you.
You can also view the whales as part of a fantastic sailing holiday.
Whitsunday Luxury Sailing cruises regularly encounter the whales in season as they complete their annual migration.
