The Whale Superhighway – often referred to as the Humpback Highway, is the 3000km stretch of coastline from northern Western Australia, to their feeding grounds in Antarctica. Today, Western Australia has the largest population of migratory Humpbacks in the world, seeing 35,000 of the mammals travel this stretch of water annually.
Margaret River Region’s whale watching season is essentially divided into two halves – from May to August migrating Humpback whales and Southern Right Whales pass through Flinders Bay, Augusta for a rest and a play before continuing their mighty journey north. Then from September to December they pass through Geographe Bay, where you will often see a large number of mothers and calves.
Whether on land or out at sea you can witness part of it by finding the perfect vantage point and keeping your eyes peeled.
