Australia Whale Experience Video Introduction

Great Barrier Reef Australia Whale Experience

Learn more about what you might see.

Last season we had a 100% success rate in finding and seeing whales on the Australia Whale Experience. From what we understand this record wasn’t achieved anywhere else along the Queensland coastline. Bundaberg really is the new epicentre of whales for all whale enthusiasts around Australia & overseas and it’s why we established the Australia Whale Experience right here, out of Bundaberg.

Our luxury catamarans the ‘Reef Empress’ or ‘Main Event’ are the perfect viewing platforms offering guests a variety of places to spot whales, capture that perfect photo or video some of our giant sea mammals in their natural habitat.

Our vessels are fully equipped and have quite unlimited space, where after seeing as many whales as you can handle, you could just enjoy a relaxing day in the sun.

The Australia Whale Experience is a half day activity which gives guests travelling to the Bundaberg Region the perfect opportunity to visit some of our other major attractions.

Picture a stunning day out on the Great Barrier Reef with Lady Musgrave Experience, a brilliant visit to the Bundaberg Rum Distillery, the Bundaberg Barrel brewed soft drinks, the fascinating Hinkler Hall of Aviation, the modern highly informative Mon Repos Turtle Centre or any other of our amazing attractions or activities in the region.

We look forward to you joining us on the leading whale watching experience in Queensland & Australia. We are always out during the season from early July until mid-October.

Guests have the option of joining one of our 1/2 Day Trips with a single tickets or by purchasing a Six (6) trip season pass giving you unprecedented access to the most extraordinary Whale Experience.

Join us and don’t miss out on this amazing adventure. You really haven’t experienced Whales until you have joined the Australia Whale Experience – just look at all the 5-star reviews from prior seasons.

What our clients say about Lady Musgrave Experience

Australia Whale Experience

As a holder of a local’s season pass (July to October), I’ve been able to do numerous whale watching trips from Burnett Heads on the Main Event…a beautiful, well equipped boat, run by the Lady Musgrave Experience, who also do the cruises to Lady Musgrave. Nothing is too much trouble for the wonderful crew. A substantial morning tea and lunch are provided. It’s the only licensed whale watching boat leaving Burnett Heads and is very well run by the enthusiastic skipper and crew. This boat has made over 30 whale watching trips and there has never been a day when whales have not been sited, often a number of pods. There have been some really amazing close encounters and I’ve witnessed all types of activities…breaches, spyhops, lunges, tail action, mugging and more! I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a unique experience.. No need to go to Hervey Bay when this is so close to Bunderberg and the surrounding suburbs!

Whale watching most memorable

A group of friends elected to take the whale watching tour over the weekend. The day was windy, and a little lumpy at sea, but the whales made any discomfort forgotten. It was amazing to see these wonderful, huge creatures so close by, apparently having fun with us and enjoying the many breaches we observed. Crew was first class, a solid operation I would recommend highly to anyone visiting Bundaberg.

Great experience!!!

We did the 4 hour whale watching tour on saturday. How great was that!!! The crew are so so nice. Nice clean well maintained boat. Crew could not do enough for all of us. Enjoyed it so much going again on tuesday

Main Event – Whale Watching

What an amazing day!!! The crew were wonderful and very knowledgable. The whales definitely put on a show for everyone today and my family cant wait for the next trip.

Australia Whale Experience from Port of Bundaberg Marina

A wonderful day out on the luxury Catamaran “Main Event”. The crew and onshore staff were all extremely helpful and pleasant. We saw many whales and Brett was constantly scanning around to alert us where the next breach or whale would appear, so we could have our cameras at the ready. The morning tea was lovely and fresh and served with a smile. Our lunch wraps were brought around to us on the deck so as not to interrupt our whale watching. This experience was fantastic and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our photos caught some fine action, but those with the more professional cameras have posted brilliant photos of breaches and slapping. We would recommend this highly and please check it out and tell your friends about this venture. We even had someone arrive in a wheelchair and that was no problem to the crew or anyone.
