Spot that Whale events
This spring, head to Eden on the NSW South Coast and celebrate the whale migration as they head back south with our Spot That Whale free events that are perfect for all ages. If you're lucky you just may spot some of this season's newborn calves swimming alongside their mothers.
Wild About Whales: Spot that whale
Dates: Every Tuesday and Wednesday in September 2018 and October 2018
Times: 9.30am - 11:30am
Where: Eden Rotary Park Lookout
Learn how to locate a whale on the horizon, identify different types of whales and find out about their energetic behaviours such as tail slapping, pec slapping and breaching. With binoculars to share and information to help you spot the whales, staff will give you handy hints and tips to draw on for the next time you do some shore-based whale watching.
There are around 45 different types of cetaceans in our waters. We'll help you spot humpbacks, southern rights, dolphins and maybe even minkes. We might even be lucky enough to spy the elusive orca.
If you have your own binoculars, bring them along. It's a good idea to wear a hat, and bring sunscreen and drinking water. If the weather is bad, the event will not be held.
