Migrating Whales Swim Past Cronulla
Whale watching season is nearing. Typically the season off the Sydney coastline runs from May to October. Back in June 2018, a lucky few surfers got close to two humpback whales. The two mammals were first noticed at Jibbon Head which is the eastern tip of the Royal National Park. They then migrated north through Cronulla beach to Kurnell peninsular.
This was a special moment for the surfers as they witnessed face to face the awesome size of these magnificent marine creatures.
When is Whale Watching Season in Cronulla?
