Giants come out to play

Jonas Liebschner of Whale Watching Sydney saw six humpbacks cruising north today even though the season has not properly kicked off. The whale season started three weeks ago, and reaches its peak between June and July with about 200 whales swimming past in 24 hours. At the moment there are 20-30. Those numbers will rise quickly. About 20,000 whales will do the migration along the east coast alone.
