Whale Watching

Western Australia has one of the longest whale-watching seasons in the world and the National Anzac Centre and surrounding precinct provides some great vantage points for whale watching. The annual migration of humpback, southern right whales and the rare blue whale brings these marine creatures to Albany waters each June. From June to October, observe these gentle giants from the summit of Mt. Adelaide at the Convoy Lookout where binolculars are available or hop on a whale-watching cruise and get up close. As the whales frolic in our sheltered bays to calve and mate, sometimes binoculars aren’t necessary – they can be seen from prime viewing spots around the Albany Heritage Park. Dolphins and seals are also regularly spotted in Albany’s sheltered waters.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are advised that this exhibition may include names, images, and references to people who have since passed away.
