Whale Watching in Winter

The beach might not be on the top of your winter must-do list – but it ought to be! From May to September Whale Watching on the Great Ocean Road tops some of the best winter getaways in Victoria lists. Travelling along our Whale Trail, you can see Southern Rights, Humpbacks, Blue Whales and the occasional Orca, slapping, spy-hopping and tail-throwing their way to the warmer waters of the Southern Ocean.
