The World Whale Conference is taking place in October this year, toward the tail end of the whale watching season, and aims to bring together researchers, conservation groups, artists and tourism operators to create a united community around whales. With this year’s theme being “Journeys That Inspire Change,” now is a great time to go whale watching with an Ecotourism Australia certified operator to make sure your next journey is making a positive change with sustainable whale watching.
Catch A Crab Tour & Oyster Farm
Calling all seafood lovers! The original Gold Coast crabbing and oyster adventure tour is the experience you didn’t know you needed, but is soon become the one you want. The folks at Catch A Crab will provide you with an unforgettable Australian outdoor lifestyle experience. You will enjoy activities along the likes of fishing, yabbie pumping and trapping of live mud crabs. All this activity is followed by one of the best seafood lunches you’ll find at the Lakeside Café, overlooking the oyster farms. What more could you want in a day out?
