East Coast Whale Trail

The Surfside is located on the Great Eastern Drive and is perfect for spotting the migration of whales to and from Antarctica. Between May and November, you have a good chance of spotting both Humpback and Southern Right Whales as they head northward to breeding areas and then on their return journey southward to their Antarctic feeding grounds. 

There are 6 different sites very close to us, known as the East Coast Whale Trail. These sites that provide information, stories and insights about the whales commonly sighted on the coast. One of these sights, which is a 2 minute drive from us located at Shelly Point, also has binoculars installed to do some whale spotting.
