Our elevated position affords fantastic views of the Ocean and along Main Beach from our Ocean View Apartments and our Premium Ocean Side Apartments and is fabulous during the annual Whale Migration early June to end of October.. We are fortunate to share these grounds with our resident local Curlews and Kangaroos seen most afternoons and early evenings which is a treat for all guests.

We have been managing the property since early September 2019 and have really enjoyed seeing the improvements around grounds, the pool, and Reception with the addition of a Resort shop. Our staff enjoy making sure all our guests have a wonderful stay here.

Whale Watch Resort is perfectly positioned in Point Lookout to see all the wonderful attractions so close. We are 350 mts from Main Beach and North Gorge Board Walk which is a must do. The board walk is perfect for viewing the Humpback Whales on their annual migration North and also on their return South. We are 5 minute walk to cafes, restaurants, local specialty shops and grocery stores.
