Ahead of the NSW state election on 25 March 2023, the NSW Government caretaker period has commenced. Limited updates will be made to this website during this period.

Dolphin and whale watching

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
