It's hard to imagine this beautiful stretch of coast three minutes from home as anything but pristine white sand and clear blue ocean stretching out to the horizon, but it has a past. This is also the migratory path of the southern right whale and the humpback whales. Each year between May and December the whales slowly make their way along the WA coast thus making them an easy target for whalers back in 1849 when a whaling station was right here (interesting read). Abandoned after only three years thank goodness. In 1979 Australia adopted an anti-whaling policy permanently ending whaling in Australian waters, instead focusing heavily on working towards the international protection and conservation of whales.. better late than never!
