Whale watching getaways

Soak up the winter sunshine, clear blue skies and quiet beaches with a coastal getaway in NSW national parks.

The cooler months are ideal for whale watching, so pack your binoculars and enjoy staying in a seaside cabin or cottage as thousands of whales migrate along the coastline until November.
