Two whales and calves seen regularly at Logans Beach

TWO southern right whale calves and mothers are the star attractions at Logans Beach nursery.

The four whales have been spotted from the viewing platform regularly over the past three weeks. 

DELWP senior biodiversity officer Mandy Watson said migrating whales were on the move, with nine confirmed sightings of southern right whales in Victorian waters last week.

“These whales were seen near Warrnambool and Apollo Bay in the south west,” she said.

“The next few months is a very exciting time for whale watching and the opportunity for land based whale watching at Logans Beach nursery and other areas along the western Victorian coast is greater than anywhere else in the state.”
