Majestic humpback whales are the fifth largest animals on Earth at around 40 tons and are regular visitors to Australian shores. Luckily this little chap isn’t quite as vast, but he’s super cuddly.
Watch between May and August as these mammals breach a couple of hundred metres off-shore down both the west and east coasts of Australia.
Learn how they eat over a ton of krill a day, have hairy skin and that mothers suckle their young for up to six months. They can migrate an impressive 5,000 kilometres every single year.
Discover how they are are highly social and intelligent mammals – and don’t actually have humps on their backs! Their name comes from the way they arch their bodies before diving. They also love a sing song and the males can hold a tune for half an hour.
Best for: Anyone who wants to go on an adventure with one of these giants of the ocean, but be safely tucked up together by bedtime.
