What will you see at Logans Beach?

Logans Beach whale viewing platform is an area that whales stay for the winter.

The resident mother whales stay most of winter as they raise their calves ready for the voyage south to Antarctica in September/October.

The whales are usually visible from the shore. The viewing platform is free of charge and always open - bring binoculars and wear warm clothing, wheelchair friendly.

The nearest toilet block is at Bluehole Road, 1.5 kilometres from Logans Beach.

The normal pattern for Warrnambool whales is for them to explore around the coast for a few days and then start heading to Logans Beach Warrnambool. Once the Logans Beach area has been 'scouted' by the mother whale they go back out to sea and have their calf.

They then return to Logans Beach Warrnambool to care for their whale calf through winter before returning to the southern oceans in September and October.
