See the Whales from your balcony!
Watching whales as they migrate along the east coast of Australia is a spectacle like no other. While whale watching season on the Gold Coast runs from May to November every year, the best time to catch the migration is between June and October.
These beautiful creatures captivate us as they swim, lifting and slapping their tails and fins and blowing jets of water through their blowholes. Queensland’s Gold Coast is prime for witnessing whales as they journey up or down the coast to breed and give birth to their calves. While seaside vantage points work a treat to catch them, there’s something unsurpassable about sailing alongside humpback and southern right whales while on a cruise. Take advantage of our ideal location to view the wahles directly from the apartment balconies, for the adventures please see us at reception for whale tour information.
The most common breeds you’ll witness are humpback whales and southern right whales, though if you’re lucky you may also spy killer whales (orcas) or false killer whales.
