Gold Coast Whale Festival 2022

Aside from a magnificent whale-watching cruise, the Gold Coast Whale Festival provides an excellent opportunity to get up close and personal with these fantastic creatures.

Burleigh Heads will host the Gold Coast Whale Festival on August 6th. Humpbacks and Highrises are in charge of organising the event (HHR). Humpbacks and Highrises is a Gold Coast-based non-profit organisation. 

Since 2011, they have been running Queensland’s most extensive marine mammal monitoring program dedicated to protecting and researching marine mammals. Through research, rescue, and education, the organisation ensures that current and future generations of the community can enjoy, appreciate, and care for whales and dolphins.

The Gold Coast Whale Festival in 2022 will feature stalls and exhibits from various organisations that are leaders in marine and coastal sustainability. Throughout the day, there will also be activities for the entire family, allowing everyone to learn and be the change they want to see. To learn more about whales, you can participate in a beach clean-up, a guided whale survey from Burleigh Hill, a guided Rocky Shore Exploration, and fluke matching for the youngest.
