Gold Coast Whale Festival 2024

13 July @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm

Gold Coast Whale Festival 2024

The Gold Coast Whale & Ocean Festival will be held on Saturday 13th July 2024 at Burleigh Heads.

The Whale Festival is a great opportunity for everyone to learn more about whales in the Gold Coast bay, and how they can participate to make a difference.

There will be stalls and exhibits from various organisations which are leading our community to marine and costal sustainability.

There will be activities for the whole family throughout the day giving everyone a chance to learn and be the change they want to see: a beach clean up, a guided whale survey from Burleigh Hill, a guided turtle walk, colouring, games and fluke matching for our youngest to learn more about whales and the marine environment. 

Find out more.
