Come see the whales migrating in Yamba
Every year, humpback whales and southern right whales can be seen migrating along the NSW coastline. They head north throughout June and in the first week of July, travelling up to their breeding grounds in warmer waters. Then, from around September to November, they return southwards.
Around 2000 whales make this journey within sight of the coast each
year. At the peak of the migration, you can stand on a coastal headland
and see up to four whales pass by every hour.
Whales pass Yamba in their annual migration and can often be seen playing and breaching in the ocean from the shore and the unit. Binoculars are recommended for the whale watcher.
