The calm safe waters of Platypus Bay off the north-western coast of Fraser Island, in the Hervey Bay Marine Park, have become known world wide as a prime whale watching area.
From August to October humpback whales on their migration south to the Antarctic stop to rest, play and nurture their calves in the bay. After entering the area the whales suddenly stop their migration style swimming and relax with the females concentrating on feeding, preparing their young calves for the 5,000 km journey and teaching them the art of survival.
