You’ll have a whale of a time in Port Stephens, which is one of the top spots to see Humpbacks and Southern right whales passing during their annual migration. Mid-May to Early September sees the whales moving north to their breeding grounds and from Mid-September to the Middle of October the south migration kicks in with lots of Humpback mothers with their new born calves seen during October.
Pods are easy to spot from the Tomaree National Park, and the Tomaree Head Summit Walk is considered one of the top ten panoramic views in Australia. Port Stephen’s beaches and foreshores also offer good whale-watching, especially from Boat Harbour, Anna Bay, Fisherman’s Bay and Barry Park in Fingal Bay. If you’re on a quad bike tour on the Stockton Bight Sand Dunes, you could be lucky enough to sight passing whales right from the beach.
