The whale migration season has started with a pod of whales being spotted along the Royal National Park shoreline.
Whale Migration Route
The annual northern whale migration runs from June to August. The whales travel over 5000km from their feeding grounds in the Antartica to North Eastern Australia where they complete their breeding and birth cycle. The ocean currents run close to the Australian eastern shoreline which makes them easy to spot.
Royal National Park Whale Spotting Sites
The Royal National Park with it’s high cliffs has several great vantage spots to watch the whales as they make their way up the coast. A popular whale spotting location near Bundeena is The Balconies and is part of the walk to the popular Wedding Cake Rock. Providential Point near Wattamolla Beach is another great location to spot whales.
