When the largest animal on earth comes to visit (blue whale, they visit every spring) it'd be rude not to go and say g'day, right!? 📸 @dylan.dehaas was lucky enough to see twelve of these magnificent creatures over the weekend, and it looks like the people aboard @naturalistecharters would have been bubbling with excitement too.

Blue whales grow to around 29 metres and 170+ tonnes, making them the largest animal on the planet. They migrate through Geographe Bay each year as they travel between the Antarctic breeding and feeding ground and the warm 'maternity ward' waters of the Kimberley region. It's estimated that only a few hundred blue whales migrate along the West Australian coast each year, while around 35,000 humpback whales make the annual journey.

Be sure to join a whale watching cruise before the season wraps up - there are charters departing Dunsborough and Busselton twice a day. If you have a Wander Voucher to redeem this week, whale watching could be a winner!

We're in for a weekend full of sunshine - perfect for all types of adventures in wine, surf and wildflower walks.

📸 @thisishelenchan soaked up some Vitamin D at Wills Domain, one of the fantastic boutique wineries in Yallingup.

Whether you're road trippin' between wineries or dreaming about your next getaway, check out the Wine Unearthed podcast for stories from the vines. Link in bio or find it on your fave podcast app.

Day 30. Bask in Busselton's Historic Heart & Soul
The beautiful @busseltonjettyofficial was built 153 years ago when timber exports were booming and extended a bunch of times as the boats got bigger! There’s more than one way to experience the jetty; stroll the entire 1.81km out to sea, reel in a fish or squid, take a ride on the famous jetty train and underwater observatory tour, or dive with the fishes on an underwater helmet tour. Book your jetty experience today.

Oh hi, handsome! 😍 The Margaret River Region is teeming with animal life. You can happen upon kangaroos, bird life, woylies and possums on tours along the Cape to Cape. Or you can visit an animal farm and find chickens, cows, pigs and emus.

This cutie pie popped up to say hello when @all_about_margaretriver took guests on a bushwalk looking for wild kangaroos. You could also try: Sunflowers Animal Farm, Wonky Windmill Farm, Eagles Heritage, Country Life Farm, South West Eco – Meet the Woylies and Discover Deadly.

Day 28. Keep Kids Happy 🤸‍♂️
Happy kids pretty much spells happy adults so finding entertainment for toddlers, tweens and teens is an essential task when you’re holidaying in the region. Luckily, there are plenty of options to choose from. Hold a snake and meet cool reptiles at Discover Deadly, zip line through the trees at Next Level Monkey Business or Forest Adventures South West, or get lost at Wow Illusions.

📸 @langley.in.the.fall Ben Langley captured this Southern Right Whale mother and calf combo playing happily in the water off Dunsborough. See these spectacular creatures on a family friendly whale watching charter 💙🐳
