Celebrate the arrival of some of the ocean’s most majestic creatures as Phillip Island's coastal waters play host to the annual migration of Humpback and Southern Right whales.

The Island Whale Festival provides a wonderful opportunity to dive into this immersive and educational three day event on Phillip Island from 7 – 9 July.

There are many free or low cost activities throughout this school holiday festival, like climbing into the belly of a 19 metre inflatable whale, checking out a marine wildlife photo exhibition and workshop, whale-spotting with an expert, or attending an info session on marine research or plastic reduction, and so much more.

The festival hub is at the Cowes Cultural Centre and a range of events will be hosted across San Remo and Phillip Island.
