There’s no better place in NSW to have a close encounter with the whales or combine adventure in an unspoilt coastal wilderness. The opportunities are as plentiful as the pilchards on which the whales feed. The festival combines whale watching from shore and sea with live shows, hands on family fun, street theatre, film, music, seafood and local produce.
