Want to Whale Watch on the cheap? Just 1.5 hours from Adelaide Backpackers Inn, whales can be seen playing just off-shore. The Southern Right Whales come up from the Antarctic to calve just off shore along the coast from Victor Harbour to Goolwa. And the great thing is, the whales stay around in the bay for a while so it's a real watching experience, not just a passing glimpse as the whales move past. The season lasts from May until September each year and while you can join a boat tour to get up close, you're just as likely to see them sitting on one of the benches overlooking the ocean. Check out the latest sightings at the Victor Harbour Whale Centre.
