Whale Watching on the Gold Coast

Jun 6, 2024

As the seasons change and the weather warms up, Nobby Beach Holiday Village on the Gold Coast becomes an even more magical place to visit. One of the most exciting times of the year is whale watching season, which typically runs from June to November. During these months, the Gold Coast transforms into a premier destination for witnessing the magnificent humpback whales on their annual migration. Here’s why Nobby Beach Holiday Village is the perfect spot to base your whale watching adventure.

The Spectacle of Whale Watching

Every year, thousands of humpback whales embark on a journey from the cold waters of Antarctica to the warmer seas of Queensland to breed and give birth. This migration brings them right past the Gold Coast, providing an incredible opportunity to see these majestic creatures up close. The sight of a 40-ton humpback breaching the water’s surface or the playful antics of a pod of dolphins is an experience you’ll never forget.

Prime Location

Located in the heart of the Gold Coast, it offers easy access to some of the best whale watching tours and lookout points.
