Each year in the Southern Hemisphere, Humpback whales migrate from Antarctic waters where they have spent summer to the sub-tropical waters of the Queensland, Australian coast to breed and give birth. This is a return journey of an amazing 10,000 kilometres. Between June and November a tourist whale watching industry revolves around the migration route of this whale species.
