We visited the Whale Watching platform at Logan's beach twice during a four day stay and were fortunate enough to see the whales ( 2 adults and 2 calves) both times. The view of the whales from the platform was quite good.

We went because we hoped to sight calfing whales which we of course did not manage to. But nevertheless, the view was great.

Each year, roughly between late May and early October, Southern Right Whales return to their nursery at Logan's Beach to give birth and raise their calves. This is an extract from the visit warnambool web site.
