Whale watching is an excitement that's hard to describe - there's really nothing like seeing these incredible mammals and watching them playing in our oceans.
Although whales can be spotted as early as May and right through until January, whale watching season begins in August and runs through to the end of November, although the number of whales in our waters is increasing each year and the season is getting longer.
Peak time is September to late November, when they are heading south to Antarctica with their young.
For the best experience, take a whale watching charter and get up close to see them feeding and playing along with other marine life including birds, seals, dolphins and penguins.
Watch whales from shore at any of these vantage points:
Haycock Point or anywhere around the headland in Ben Boyd National Park
