Land-based whale watching Sunshine Coast spots

Here are some ideal spots to get some whale watching Sunshine Coast done WITHOUT having to pay a cent!

Point Perry, Coolum

There’s a lookout on the edge of the point that’s a great vantage point for spotting a passing migrating Humpack! Travel along the Coolum Boardwalk up to the tippy top, it’s about 10 minutes along.

Point Cartwright, Kawana

You’ll want to go to the northern point of Pacific Boulevard and then travel to the lighthouse.

Moffat Headland, Moffat Beach

Travel straight up the hill from the Moffat Beach car park for some beautiful panoramic views to watch the whales jump and frolick.

Point Arkwright, Coolum

You can see all the way across to Moreton Island! It’s on the Coolum boardwalk (make sure you’re choosing the Point Arkwright car park)

Dolphin Point, Noosa National Park

It’s about twenty minutes along the bitumen path of the Noosa Coastal Track. The name says it all but you’ll also manage to spot the occasional passing whale. A gorgeous spot!

Whale watching Sunshine Coast

This is a life-changing activity for your family. There’s an unearthly beauty that comes with watching these peaceful giants at play. It truly has to be seen to be believed.
