Winter in Melbourne means the whales are out

Winter isn't the warmest time to be in Melbourne but that doesn't mean you should stay indoors.

One reason to get out is to see.. the whales. Natures diverse group of fully aquatic placental marine mammals. Rug up and get the kids out to one of the following spots between May and October (prime whale sighting season) and you might be in luck.
