HOME OF THE LADY DENMAN - Local history isn't always about the big story - the everyday story of life in the early development of the region can be a fascinating, entertaining and educational journey.

Whale migration


Each year at this time we get to see a remarkable event.
Here is a picture of two Humpback Whales doing a bit of tail slapping with Pigeon House Mountain as a backdrop. These whales eventually made there way right into the Wreck Bay area right in front of the village and slowly cruised past only 20 meters from the rocks, giving a few lucky tourists a fantastic experience, and to make it even more exciting one was almost totally white.

If you get a chance head out to one of the headlands and do a bit of Whale watching. The lookout near Cape St George Lighthouse is a particularly good spot to see them heading north.
The museum has plenty of material available at the visitors centre to help you along.
