It’s that time of the year where humpback and southern right whales migrate along the Hunter Coast between May and November with pregnant whales heading north for warmer waters to give birth then head back south with their calves for Antarctica.
We spend the morning taking the invigorating short walk to the summit of Tomaree Head, 161 metres above the Port Stephens entrance. Once at the summit you will get to experience panoramic views of Yacaaba Head, Cabbage Tree, Boondelbah, the Broughton Islands, plus views of Zenith, Wreck and Box Beaches, and Fingal Island.
The summit of Tomaree Head is a great vantage point to see the migrating whales and pods of dolphins.
With the days exercise out of the way, it's off to the Hunter Valley to visit 3 cellar doors and lunch at the restaurant of your choice or leave it to Hunter Tours to recommend.
As this is a private tour Hunter Tours can accommodate any special requests to suit your specific group.
Price on application.
happy days :)
