Celebrating the annual whale season
The winter school holidays don’t just mark the half-way point of the school year; they also mean that humpback whales, southern right whales and even the occasional pod of killer whales start to arrive in our coastal waters. The Island Whale Festival celebrates the arrival of these majestic creatures in our waters.
This immersive three day event takes place on Phillip Island from 5 – 7 July, and has something for everyone, with a weekend packed full of free or low cost activities right across the island. Whale spotting will of course be a highlight of this weekend, and visitors will have plenty of opportunities to do this from either land or sea.
