Winter on the Sunshine Coast also marks the start of the annual whale watching season where we see thousands of the gentle giants pass our coastline. Up to 22 000 humpbacks are expected to make the northern migration from Antarctica to Queensland by June before returning south from September to November. It is a great window of time to be able to experience these amazing animals and their antics. From breathtaking breaches, tail and pec slaps to tail lobs, there is a great opportunity to witness these behaviours in the their environment from the Sunshine Coast. There are a number of fantastic vantage points on land to witness these events including nearby Moffat Headland at Moffat Beach or take a drive to Point Cartwright at Kawana. Head out on the water on a fantastic day trip with Whale One, Elite Sailing or Sunshine Coast Afloat which all operate out of Mooloolaba. How about swimming with the whales? Sunreef Mooloolaba offers the opportunity to get in the water with these amazing creatures for an experience never to be forgotten.
