Humpback Whale Watching

Posted by Jody on September 28, 2011

If you are already in Taroona, Binalong Bay or on the beautiful beaches of Wineglass Bay, you’ve come to the right place for humpback whale watching! Lucky you! You’re on the east coast of the Australian island of Tasmania. The island, in the state of Tasmania, lies 150 miles south of the continent of Australia. If you are even farther south, in Hobart, you’d do well to grab your binoculars and set up your own humpback whale watching station at a good vantage point.  Over the next few days Tasmania’s spring whale migration should be closer to shore and farther south as the humpback whales head to Antarctica to feed. So far, it looks like it’s going to be a good season for humpback whale sightings along the coast of Tasmania.

According to the news article at The “The migratory route of humpbacks takes them down the eastern flank of Tasmania and mother and calf pairs often venture into sheltered inshore areas for brief rest stops from their long southerly journey.”

Wineglass Bay, located on the Freycinet Peninsula of Tasmania has it all!  Besides humpback whale watching, Wineglass Bay has white sand beaches, turquoise water and unspoiled, spectacular coastal scenery. According to Discover Wineglass Bay, along with Cradle Mountain, is recognised across the world as one of Tasmania’s iconic destinations. But, there is more to this east coast gem than simply capturing your perfect-postcard snap from the lookout. Located in Freycinet National  Park, the region is so naturally stunning and blissfully pure that it’s easy to feel as if you are an early French explorer first setting foot on Wineglass  Bay.”

Judging by the photos I’ve seen… That’s very easy to believe!
