It’s almost time for those majestic creatures of the sea to swim by us again!
During the winter, whales travel from the feeding grounds of Antarctica to the warmer waters up the East Coast of Australia.
Throughout the migration whale watching is a popular activity on the Gold Coast, with many tour companies promising sightings – or you receive a free ticket!
One such company is Coolangatta Whale Watch. With a choice of morning or afternoon tours, you will board a 50ft catamaran that is capable of carrying 46 passengers and embark on a 2.5-3 hour whale watching cruise.
Both tours include coffee / tea served with donuts and biscuits, and a hydrophone to listen to the whales and dolphins sing! For a small additional fee they can also organise bus transfers to take you from your Tugan accommodation to their departure point in South Tweed heads.

The whales can also often be seen frolicking offshore from the beach and coastal facing balconies of your Gold Coast accommodation.
