They're back! Whales have been spotted all along the Leeuwin coast in recent weeks as they prepare for their long journey north. Humpbacks like this pod photographed by @timcampbellphoto spend summer in the Antarctic Ocean, feasting on krill and mating. They can be seen in Flinders Bay from May to July, before migrating to the warm waters north of Broome to calve.

Hop aboard one of the awesome whale watching tours that departs Augusta Harbour. Tours begin this Saturday 8 May, so be sure to put it on your holiday list as you #WanderOutYonder this winter 🐳

It's official, Busselton is WA’s 2021 GWN7 Top Tourism Town!

​Busselton claimed the Gold Medal in the Top Tourism Town Awards last night held at the 2021 Perth Airport WA Regional Tourism Conference in Geraldton.

​Busselton was lauded as an easily accessible destination to “escape hectic urban life” and as winner of the WA award, Busselton will now go forward to compete in a national competition to be crowned Australia’s Top Tourism Town.

​With gorgeous scenes like this beachside sunset captured by @idylan_23.4 lighting up our social media feeds on the regular, there's no wonder folks are so attracted to this coastal getaway. Stay tuned for more info on how you can get behind WA's Top Tourism Town and help it along on its journey to becoming Australia's favourite holiday hangout.

The 35th Boost Mobile Margaret River Pro is ON.

All eyes are on Surfers Point with a pumping ground swell and clean winds providing solid waves for the worlds most elite surfers to battle it out at one of the most exciting surf arenas on the planet.

As always the crowd is dying to know if we'll see more action across the channel at the Box, one of the most challenging waves on the entire circuit. This shot of US athlete @griffin_cola captured by @driftwoodphotography_mr sums up the wave perfectly - intense. ⚡

Stay tuned for updates on your favourite riders and to find out who will be crowned king and queen of the Margaret River Pro for 2021. Yew! 🤙

This is not your "every-day-beach-stroll". Did you know that Hamelin Bay in the south of the Margaret River Region has a rich maritime history and flourishing marine ecosystem?

​A stroll along the shores of this rugged (but incredibly beautiful) coastline will take you past remnants of the old timber milling operations of the 1800's and intricate limestone features of the windswept coastline that are just begging to be photographed like this shot by @dylan_alcock. As you walk alongside the lapping waves you'll be greeted by numbers of friendly stingrays who seem to want to invite you out into the bay to explore the snorkelling opportunities amongst the temperate reef systems; home to some 12 shipwrecks!

​A weekend away at Hamelin Bay is more than just a coastal getaway, it's a journey back in time. 🤿⛵⚓

How's the serenity? We can't think of a finer escape than sitting quietly, listening to peppermint leaves rustling in the breeze, magpies and kookaburras cackling, and black cockatoos calling as they fly over 💚
