Whale • Order Cetacea
Well, for those who were there, it was worth the wait. Cape Solander, one of many places along the coast of New South Wales and Australia, where you can enjoy the view of whales on their annual migration...

We were treated to a particular boisterous display of two humpback whales breaching (throwing themselves out of the water, tail lobbing (raising their fluke out of the water and then slapping the water), as well as flipper slapping, and the blow.

Following are some images taken during the whale watch season at Cape Solander. More images can be seen from Fingal Head on the Tweed Coast.
