Phillip Island's Annual Whale Migration

Celebrate the annual migration of some of the ocean’s most majestic creatures as our coastal waters play host to Humpback and Southern Right whales making their way north to their winter breeding grounds. The Island Whale Festival is an immersive three day event held during the school holidays on Phillip Island from 7 – 9 July, and heralds the arrival of these seafaring cetaceans into our marine environment.

Local community members and visitors alike have the opportunity to engage with a range of free or low cost activities that will not only entertain, but also allow you to appreciate the wildlife and natural habitats of Phillip Island and the Bass Coast region.
