this winter, take the journey & share the story

THE WHALE TRAIL is a must do winter road-trip for whale sightings along the Great Ocean Road, from Warrnambool through Port Fairy to Portland (or the reverse order if you’re coming from South Australia).

This section of coastline is known as the ‘whale corridor’, because in the winter months Whales from the Antarctic make the journey to warmer waters along this coast, in order to breed, birth and nurse their young. 

The Whale Trail is a collection of locally made itineraries of what to do and see and what’s on along the way. Whether you’re a nature lover, an adventurer or a cosy up food and wine type there will be an itinerary to suit your style.
