Side note: the weekend we went away was Grand Final Long weekend in October. This is just another reason why Victoria is the best state in Australia. They have long weekends for sports. Although I am not much of a sports fan, I will take any long weekend I can!
We drove up to Eden from Melbourne on the Friday. It took us almost 6 hours. We set up our tent at the campsite and went straight to a viewing point (Rotary Park) on the coast to see if we could catch a glimpse of a whale. We did! You didn’t even need binoculars to see their tales thrashing around in the water.
The next day we woke to a broken tent! At some stage throughout the night one of the poles snapped. We decided to leave it for the day as we had to get to our Whale Watching cruise with Cat Balou. They took us out for a 3.5 hour boat trip and we saw about 4-5 pods of 3-4 humpback whales. That’s over 12 whales in total. They were mostly families with baby calves. Super cute!
