• SPOT THAT WHALE – Mobile exhibit

    by  • September 8, 2017 • Announcements

    SPOT THAT WHALE mobile exhibit on again during September and October


    It’s whale watching time as the Humpbacks start to head back south on their way home to Antarctica. As they cruise past our headlands and bays, those of us lucky enough to see them may get to witness some magnificant and energetic behaviours typical of these huge marine mammals. However, there are many of us who don’t, and so this year, we’d like to help!
