Island Whale Festival

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

5 Jul 2024 to 7 Jul 2024 Annual Event

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 at various venues across Phillip Island with the Festival Hub in Cowes at the brand new Berninneit cultural centre. 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 spotting, whale cruises, presentations, craft activities, pop-up art show, film screenings and much much more!

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