The iconic coastline between Ceduna and the Head of Bight to the west provides the visitor with unparalleled opportunities to visit remote beaches, get off the beaten track, and witness nature at its best.
Ancient Land Tours’ whale watching tours takes guests from Ceduna to the very edge of the Nullarbor, and the Head of Bight.
Southern Right Whales visit the Head of Bight each year to give birth, mate and socialise. They arrive in May and depart around October. They spend the rest of the time travelling to or feeding well offshore in the Southern Ocean. In June and July most of the whales you will see are adults. You may be lucky enough to observe these 70 tonne mammals mating (look for groups rolling around on the surface). By late August you can commonly see the mothers swimming along the cliffs with their young calves at their side. At this time there are often 70 or more whales in the area visible from the platform. By the time the whales leave in October the calves have grown and have become strong enough to join their mothers on the long migration south.
There are unparalleled bird watching opportunities, coastal raptors have been observed, and depending on the time of the year we may be lucky to see bustards as well. On land we may see dingos, wombats, and kangaroos.
For small private groups getting back to nature. Lunch, and morning and afternoon tea is included.
