Dates: 28th August 2021
The Whale Festival is a great opportunity for everyone to learn more about whales in the Gold Coast bay, and how they can participate to make a difference. There will be stalls and exhibits from various organisations which are leading our community to marine and costal sustainability. There will be activities for the whole family throughout the day giving everyone a chance to learn and be the change they want to see: a beach scavenger hunt cleanup with exciting prizes, a whale survey, and storytelling for our youngest to learn more about whales.

Supporting the whales
Since 2011, HHR has been running Queensland’s largest marine mammal monitoring program dedicated to the protection and research of marine mammals. Our mission is to ensure present and future generations of the community have access to enjoy, appreciate and care for whales and dolphins through research, rescue and education.
HHR spokesman, Olaf Meynecke, said, ”We have been collecting data on humpback whales and other marine mammals since 2011 – in fact, it is Queensland’s largest marine mammal monitoring program. Now, we want to share some of our excitement about these amazing creatures.”
