The best place to watch whales in Australia From late April, southern right whales will migrate to the temperate breeding waters of south Australia and Victoria. At the same time, humpback whales will also continue to migrate north and south along the east and west coasts toward warmer waters. This means you can see giant whales at tourist sites along the coast of Australia from May to November.
