WHERE THEY HANG ? Watch the horizon for a glimpse of this hungry giant! Thousands of humpback whales make their way up the East Coast of Australia and through our Whitsunday waters every winter. Top spots to check them out include Bowen's Flagstaff Hill lookout & Murray Bay!

SUPER COOL FACTS ? A humpback whale will eat 2000-2500 kg of plankton, krill and small, schooling fish each day.

LEAVE NO FOOTPRINTS ? If you're out whale watching in your own boat, remember to heed the safe whale distance practices
