Island Whale Festival


Celebrate the annual arrival of some of the ocean’s most majestic creatures as Phillip Island’s coastal waters play host to humpback and southern right whales and even the occasional killer whales.

The Island Whale Festival is taking place on 1 – 3 July at various venues across Phillip Island. Local community and visitors alike have the opportunity to engage with a range of activities that will not only entertain but also allow you to appreciate the wildlife and natural habitats of Phillip Island and the Bass Coast region.

The festival weekend is set to feature various activities and events including whale watching, workshops, arts and crafts, photography, art show, whale cruises and more!

Stay up to date with the latest announcements, including the program at the website or follow the festival on social media.
