Did you know that that from May to October, 30,000 humpback whales swim past the Gold Coast on their annual migration to breed in sub-tropical waters? These whales can frequently be viewed from the beach. For an unforgettable experience, you can also witness the majesty of the whale up close by taking a whale watching boat trip. It's well worth it.
