Whale watching

Ride upon the spirit of the humpback whale as these majestic, migratory creatures pass by Redlands Coast from June to November each year. Watch from the headland of Point Lookout (Mulumba) on North Stradbroke Island (Minjerribah) as an estimated 25,000 whales migrate north. Be captivated as they breach and spout, sending the sparkling waters of southern Moreton Bay high into the air, glistening in the sunlight. Each time your eyes land upon one of these magnificent mammals it is as exciting as the last. 

Point Lookout is regarded as one of the best land-based whale watching sites on Australia’s eastern coast. It is here that you will find the Gorge Walk, one of the finest vantage points on the island to spot the whales as they pass on their annual migration. You will also have a bird’s eye view of a variety of other marine life, including sea turtles, manta rays, schools of fish and playful dolphins frolicking in the waves. 

While you're on the island, there is an exciting range of adventures and discoveries awaiting you among the sandy white beaches, crystal clear ocean waters and natural freshwater lakes of Minjerribah. These include 4WD tourssand boardingsurfingdivingsnorkelling, golf, cultural activities and so much more.
