Winter is coming

Winter is coming – and so are the whales. Marty’s at Little Beach is offering a special holiday package ahead of the whale-watching season, which each year sees thousands of humpback whales making an appearance in the waters off Port Stephens.

Catch the extraordinary creatures as they travel from their Antarctic feeding grounds to the warmer waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Every winter around 12, 000 humpback whales pass the coast of Port Stephens in their migration path, delighting visitors to the region with acrobatic demonstrations.
