Want to go whale watching in Sydney? Cape Solander is undoubtedly one of Sydney's best whale watching spots. June to July is the best time to see humpback whales as they migrate to warmer waters. If you’re lucky you won’t even need to look far – whales have been known to swim as close as 200m from the coast.

Named after botanist Daniel Solander, Cape Solander features a lookout with a viewing platform – the perfect vantage point – along with information on whales seen in Sydney waters. Friendly volunteers are there to provide information throughout the season.

If you plan on a coastal walk through the park, then Cape Solander is a good starting point. It’s also a great spot for birdwatching or simply gazing at the clear horizon.

Add Cape Solander to your Aussie Bucket List if you enjoy whale watching, nature and exploring Australia's great outdoors.
