Gold Coast Whale Season 2014

BOOKINGS PHONE +61 7 5525 9800


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.

For more information visit this link Gold Coast Whale Watching.

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

This property is excellent. Right on the beach and the gardens and surrounds are immaculate. Beautiful pool and spa area and the units are clean and extremely comfortable.
We stayed at the golden riviera beach resort for 5 nights. Fantastic apartments. The pool area and grounds were immaculate. A great plus being right on the beach, safe swimming with the life guards right outside the resort.
We ended up staying at Golden Riviera for 4 months we loved it there so much. The grounds are very well maintained with multiple areas to sit and either enjoy the sun or shaded areas, and a few bbq areas also.
