Finding Whales this Winter at Phillip Island

June 4, 2024

Whether you’re an avid whale watcher or a casual observer, Phillip Island promises an unforgettable adventure amidst its stunning natural beauty.

Whales are magnificent creatures to observe! You’ll want to plan your visit carefully to catch a glimpse of them around Phillip Island during their migration season.

Whale Watching Season

The prime time for whale watching in this region typically falls between May and September, with the peak season at Phillip Island during June and July. Over this time, southern right whales, humpback whales, and occasionally other species migrate along the coast.

Observation Points

For Phillip Island, the southern coast is your best opportunity with places such as the Nobbies Centre and the surrounding coastline offering excellent vantage points. Pyramid Rock and the cliffs around Cape Woolamai can also be good spots. Take a look at Bass Coast Whale Discovery trail for more great spots.

Boat Tours

Consider joining a guided whale-watching tour. Wildlife Coast Cruises offers daily tours, morning Winteter Whale Cruises and afternoon Dolphin & Whale Cruises.

Weather Conditions

Keep an eye on weather forecasts. Clear, calm days are ideal for spotting whales, as rough seas can make sightings more challenging.
