The best time to whale watch is September to November when whales migrate south.
Land-based viewing spots include:
- Burrewarra Point Lookout (Guerilla Bay)
- Broulee Island
- Toragy Point (Moruya Heads)
- Carters Beach Headland (Kianga)
- Bar Rock Road Lookout (Narooma)
For those venturing offshore:
- Humpback whales tend to swim close to shore near Montague Island on their migration south, and twenty or more whales can be seen daily
- Killer whales and southern right whales, dolphins, flying fish, hammerhead sharks and manta rays are common sights
- The marine park is also home to large Australian and New Zealand fur seal populations
- Visit the Office of Environment and Heritage and Wild About Whales for more information about whales or visit www.visitnsw.com for more tourist information including charter operators
