  Whale Spout
by ATXtraveler

Warrnambool is touted as one of the best places on the Southern Coast of Victoria to sight the great Southern Right Whales. They are called Right Whales because in the days of whaling, the size, and blubber content was what they considered the right characteristics.

These days, there are several options of how to catch a whale of a tale, and the best way is to head to Warrnambool's Logan Beach Whale "Nursery". There is a very nice viewing platform, and the whales can be viewed throughout a large number of months. Obviously, there are no guarentees... but in just 20 minutes of us being there, we were able to site one of these great majestic animals.

I have to apologize for the poor quality of this picture, but I am not a professional photographer, and trying to catch a whale spout is one of the tougher shots for a small digital pic!

Directions: 8 minutes from the City Center along the beach route.
