Manly is lucky to be one of the few places in the world to witness one of the longest whale migrations in the world, as the animals travel along the coast of eastern coast of Australia, between their winter breeding ground to where they feed for the summer.

While whale watching season spans from early May to late November, the northern migration in early August provides viewers with stunning breaching performances by the whales and active males showing their dominance to impress females.
