4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Great set up to park and walk up to see the whales. There were a number of whales there when we went, would recommend bringing your binoculars for a better view.

“Whale of a time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Spent two days in the area and visited Logans Beach 3 times and saw whales every time. There is a great viewing platform there now which could easily cater for dozens of people at a time

Thank you for the kind review. The city has done a wonderful job in building this dedicated whale viewing platform. The whales do their bit each year by swimming in front of it as they train their young calf each winter.

Keep an eye out for the Great Ocean Road whales facebook page for the latest news on sightings.

“Whale watch.”

Got to see whales in the morning. Made the trip to Warrnambool even more worthwhile. Great to see the whales in a safe sea nursery.

“Amazing!”

Read about this place but never really believed we could so easily see whales from a beach viewing platform. How wrong could I be?! Amazing
