Head of Bight

Eyre Peninsula & the West Coast

The viewing platforms and boardwalks at Head of Bight overlook a major southern right whale breeding ground. Whales migrate here from Antarctica, and you can see them cavorting from May to October. The breeding area is protected by the 45,822-sq-km Great Australian Bight Commonwealth Marine Reserve, the world's second-largest marine park after the Great Barrier Reef. The info centre here has snacks.
