A really nice, low impact way of watching the whales. After reaching the boardwalk, we saw our first whale within 30 seconds, and then consistently for nearly 2 hours. Would recommend bring binoculars, sometimes the whales are quite far out, but other times within 100m...More

Lucky to see whales each of our 5 day visit - 11 on day one. It has been fascinating to see the adults and calves at Logan's Beach. They are absolutely huge, but graceful.

Great spot to just about see whales guaranteed in winter. Great board walk. Would be great to have some more shelter against wind and rain though.

Glorious sunshine despite the cold as we stood to watch several whales at play. Bring your binoculars for better viewing.

This is the second time to Warrnambool for whale watching and this time we got lucky. A great experience and very well set up for visitors; it's almost like the whales play to the crowd. Will be going back again

I have never watched whales before. This place in my opinion is a must see spot. It's free and not too far away from main highway. Most importantly not being interrupted by a big crowd of tourists from endless coaches. Don't miss this part next...More

Each year, roughly between late May and early October, Southern Right Whales return to their nursery at Logan's Beach to give birth and raise their calves. This is an extract from the visit warnambool web site.
