Logan’s Beach, Warrnambool

Whale watching! Whale watching! Whale watching!  Getting the picture?  This is the best place to watch the Southern Right Whales return to Logan’s Beach to give birth and raise their calves.  It usually happens between late May and early October and attracts visitor viewing from around the world.

Don’t think you should only go here during whale watching season as the views are spectacular at any time of year.  My last visit was in early March and although I didn’t see a whale (or a dolphin, shark or seal for that matter) it was well worth the trip.  The viewing platform is high above the beach has easy access with several levels so the person with the high hat won’t block your view.  

You can get down to the beach but make sure you are feeling fit as it is a steep climb back up.  There is disabled access to the platform and plenty of parking but no toilets so please make sure you go first!  On my last visit a group of young surfers were getting ready to go surfing.  Wouldn’t recommend swimming and check it out thoroughly before surfing.  Prefer a brave soul to a lost one.

To get there cross the bridge on Marfell Road (yes you need to find where this road is) and turn right just after you leave the bridge.  This is Bluehole Road.  On your left you will see Logans Beach Road and I am sure you can guess where that goes.  Its easy to get to and a magnificent viewing platform so don’t miss out.

To see if there are any whales try the Facebook page here.
