Woohoo!!! The humpbacks are coming up the coast, so we’re celebrating their arrival with an awesome new Humpback Whale Kids Course.
More than 20,000 Humpback Whales migrate up the East Coast of Australia from May each year. It’s one of the longest migratory journeys of any mammal (up to 10,000km) and it’s free and easy to watch from the coast. So why not get the low down on the migration and get down to the ocean to experience what’s probably the greatest acrobatic show on earth!
Humpback Whale Kids Course Content
We’ve created awesome videos, images, fast facts, infographics, a whale watching guide, humpback ID chart, a migration calendar, maps, quizzes and more that will arm you with all you need to know about humpbacks.
Personalised Humpback Whale Certificate
Complete the course and you will receive a personalised humpback whale certificate, awarded by our very own Head Marine Biologist, Richard Coward!
Whale Watching Guide

Our short humpback videos include amazing footage of humpbacks doing what they do best – breaching, slapping and singing! so, we’ve added some lively music which we think goes pretty well with the whales – it’s big and bold too!!
