Whale-watching is set to be one of the biggest attractions on Australia’s Frasier Island this August.
While the Australian region of Queensland may be more famous for its pure-bred dingoes, each August a giant of the seas steals the limelight for nature-loving visitors.
Hervey Bay’s famous humpback whales are spotted off the coastline at this time each year, and Brits hoping to see these amazing creatures are encouraged to book flights to Australia.
An estimated 4,000 whales visit the region from August 1st to the end of October each year to wallow in the warm waters of the coast of Fraser Island.
The island resort of Kingfisher Bay offers guests an off-shore day cruise to see these giants of the deep before they migrate back to Antarctica for the summer.
Colin Anderson, the resort’s head ranger, said: “There’s no doubt the calm waters off Fraser Island offer some of the most jaw-dropping whale watching in the world.”
Daily whale-watching trips from the resort are available to visitors for 115 Australian dollars (£75) per adult and 70 Australian dollars per child.
