Stradbroke Island is one of the best land-based whale watching destinations that Queensland has to offer.
And now is the perfect time to see these amazing creatures.
During the winter season Stradbroke Island’s waters are bustling with activity. There are thousands of humpback whales migrating north to breed in the warmer waters. There are also dolphins, turtles and manta rays easily seen from many look-out points of this great destination.
Point Lookout, Stradbroke Island is a prime viewpoint for the humpback whale migration season as 85 per cent of the gentle giants can be witnessed from land without having to board a boat.
According to Allure Stradbroke Resort, these are some of the great locations to spot these majestic creatures.
North Gorge Walk
Take a stroll along the iconic North Gorge Walk. This will take you to the second most eastern point of Australia and you will have unrestricted views of the gentle giants as they pass close to the headlands.
Whale Rock Lookout
Located on the North Gorge Walk, Whale Rock Lookout is a place where you can enjoy the raw beauty of nature and a great place to see the whales pass by.
Frenchman’s Bay Lookout
Frenchman’s Bay Lookout has a picnic table and small space of grassland looking over beautiful Frenchman’s Bay. This lookout is located on East Coast Road across from the well-known Gelati Shop in Point Lookout. So why not enjoy a gelati or hot coffee as you watch the whales go by?
