Connecting with Nature on a Different Kind of Holiday
We all like to go on holiday around the end of the year so we can unwind and relax. One of the problems is that so many family holidays don’t really allow us to do this at all. So many people go to the same old places, and this is not really conducive to a memorable holiday. A truly memorable holiday is one that energises and exposes us to new things.
Where Should You Go?
If you’re travelling to Sydney, why not also participate in whale watching in Sydney? Humpback Whales are truly the giants of the sea and they migrate up the east coast of Australia between May and August each year. They move from the cold waters around Antarctica to warmer areas so they can breed.
As they migrate, we get a spectacular view of them and their unique behaviours. Truly, this is the kind of adventure that will provide a very different holiday experience for any family.
Why Should You See the Whales?
Humpback Whales are one of the most amazing creatures in the natural world. By going out on a charter boat from Sydney Harbour, you’ll get to see them as they cruise along the coastline. Here are just a few reasons why you should seriously consider adding this experience to your next holiday:
- Education: Whale watching is a truly memorable experience for anyone, but it’s even better as an educational experience for children. They can learn about Humpback Whales and the experience will stay with them for many years to come.
- Unique behaviours: Tail slapping, fin slapping, and peduncle throwing are all unique whale behaviours that can excite the viewer. Watching them rise up out of the water and create waves of crashing white water is a thrilling experience that connects us to their world and teaches us about their unique behaviours.
- Memorable: You could go to the same old holiday destinations that you always go to, but how memorable would it be? How long would you remember it for? When you go whale watching off the coast of Sydney, one of Australia’s most iconic cities, you get to experience the wonders of nature. This provides a truly memorable holiday experience that can’t be replicated any other way.
As Humpback Whales migrate up the east coast of Australia to warmer waters, we have a unique opportunity to see them in their natural environment. If you’re looking for a family road trip and holiday experience that will stay with you and connect you with these gentle giants of our seas, you should certainly place whale watching high on your holiday bucket list.
