If whale watching from a boat sounds awesome, why not try whale watching from the sky? Take to the air with an experienced pilot in a microlight aircraft to watch humpback whales that travel north to their winter home from Antarctica after a summer feeding season.
These marvellous animals stop by Byron Bay every year between June and November and it has become one of Australia’s premier whale-watching spots.
