Winter Attractions in Warrnambool

Without a doubt, one of the best winter attractions in Warrnambool is whale watching (from May through to September). Follow the Winter Whale Trail to see these majestic creatures (including Southern Right, Humpback, Blue and Orca) journey from the Antarctic to breed, birth and raise their calves right here in this stunning location. They nurse their young close to the shore so you should be able to spot them from one of the many viewing platforms — Logans Beach in Warrnambool is one of the best local spots for whale watching.
