“We spent about half an hour just gazing out from here and were amazed. We saw seals, gannets, and even migrating whales.”
For one of the best whale watching spots along the NSW coast, you can’t go past Green Cape lookout. With vast ocean views from this rocky peninsula, it’s also a popular spot for birdwatching and wildlife-spotting - a perfect pit stop on a car tour of the wild and remote NSW Far South Coast.
Just a short, easy walk from the carpark, the imposing Green Cape Lightstation dominates the landscape. You can even take a tour or if you choose to extend your visit, Green Cape Lightstation Keeper's Cottage. Take in thefresh ocean breezes as you gaze up and down the coast, looking for whales and dolphins.
There’s plenty of other wildlife to look out for too, including a resident population of fur seals, dolphins, albatross, gannets and sea eagles. During October, hundreds of muttonbirds can frequently be seen during their annual migration.
