I arrived at 3.55, I was having problems keeping track through all the different time zones heading to SA. There were at least a dozen whales and their babies in the water, flapping tails and using their blowholes, it was amazing. The staff were friendly...More

At the head of the bight is a whale look out. We did see 5 whales and they came up pretty close. It cost seniors $5 or $10 to go to the centre. Cannot remember the costing. It was worth it to see the whales....More

We stayed overnight at the free Park by the gates at the entrance of the whale viewing site. Tidy area, set back from the highway, with cyclone fencing on 3 sides, hardened gravel surface with no power or water or ablutions available, but it is...More

Obviously we were there at the wrong time. This site is advertised as a nursery for whales and it was not birthing time. However I was disappointed in the shop - very little. There was a fee to enter and use the boardwalk. This reasonably...More

This lookout has amazing views of the cliffs and coastline with ramps and steps to access points. A nice selection of souvenirs in the gift shop as well as drinks, morning tea & coffee.

An overnight stay near here while crossing the Nullabor. So glad we stopped here. Dramatic coastal scenes and whales. Don't miss this spot.

Fantastic views as it was a sunny clear day, entrance fee minimal, don’t buy a coffee, it’s awful. So many flies but that’s the bush for you, walkways good with easy access toilet facilities clean and car park plenty of room for cars or caravans...More

If you are travelling either way on the Nullarbor this place is a must. The views are extraordinary and the $7 per adult you pay goes to help keep the place open and for the upkeep of the tourism trail. Highly recommend

We purchased a seniors ticket during the calving season. When we returned a few weeks later, and the whales had left we were allowed to go and look for free! I think the tickets in calving season are for one day only.
