It’s whale-watching time!

Join us at Booderee this weekend to assist ORCCA with their annual whale census and see how many of these magnificent creatures you can spot!

Each year around 12,000 to 14,000 humpback whales make the migration north. Booderee’s Cape St George Lighthouse is one of the best places on the South Coast to view this amazing event.

We’ll be at the lighthouse this Sunday, 24 June, with ORCCA, helping to count humpback and southern right whales. It’s free to take part and a great way for the whole family to take part in whale reserch. Last year over 1,400 whales were counted!

We also invite you to enjoy damper and billy tea and learn about the cultural significance of the sea from one of Booderee’s traditional owners – Julie Freeman of Galamban Aboriginal Experiences.
