The Finest Whale Watching Spots In Victoria Along The Great Ocean Road

by Port Fairy Motor Inn Quality Motel Accommodation in Port Fairy - Center
The Warrnambool Winter Trail leads the way to come across the appraised place for seeing the whales along the Great Ocean Road. Once the whales are in front of the sight, the jot to witness the endangered southern right whale is just awe-inspiring.

Your final destination to stay is sure to be Port Fairy, and before you start off for the trip, reserve a budget accommodation in Port Fairy, for yourself and your family.

Now, when you have aimed at Whale watching, then this is how you should start -
 
First Stop – Logan’s Beach, Warrnambool
Starting with a road trip from Melbourne, and traversing the Great Ocean Road's twists and turns will give you the most splendid experience of the world's most scenic coastal drives. In Warrnambool, Logan's Beach is the beginning of the Whale Trail.  This very Victorian whale watching drive will be taking you through Port Fairy after Portland. Indeed an epic!

The rough sea in the Great Australian Bight at this time is perfect for the whales as they are more interested to breach rough grass.  Where you will stand in the sunshine, waiting to catch a glimpse of an adult or calf in the waters off Logan Beach is termed as the "nursery".

These whales come back to the same breeding ground year after year. Here, the southern right whale families remain for two or three months. The mothers train their calves to build up their skills, confidence and strength anticipating their 5000-kilometre journey to Antarctica.
 
Second Stop – Warrnambool to Portland
Here, the whales breed incredibly close to the shore. Rather, it is the only place where you can see the whales close. Drive just 25 minutes up the road to serene Port Fairy to continue with whale spotting adventures.

You shall come across a pit stop in order for  Tower Hill's spectacle on the way. The town is having volcanic craters rimmed by volcanic ash beds. Island hills and shimmering lakes are along with its tapered island hills. A nature reserve is there inside the crater, which is managed by the Worn Gundidj Aboriginal Cooperative. The reserve is the home to a substantial indigenous storyline, thus making it a most fascinating stop for the families.

Third Stop – The Humpback Whales in Port Fairy
On reaching Port Fairy, head for East Beach. Here check out the humpback whales and the southern right whales. On Griffiths Island, the still-active Port Fairy is a standing stall. It is having a red door and domed roof, which are exactly like the lighthouse seen in the picture books.

Walk down the walking track from Martins Point over to the island. Sometimes, at a particular time of the year, you will come across famous shearwaters seabirds colonies. They come there and stay till April travelling from Alaska in late September.

Port Fairy is a dear weekend town to the visitors from different corners of the world, owing to its pretty and coastal setting, and belonging to the Great Ocean Road. Whale watching is among the fascinating activity, and the Great Ocean Road trail brings up a  great opportunity that you can never miss.
