Winter Wildlife

Winter can be a wonderful time to be walking in the Royal. Sunny days with light cool breezes….. walk on the coast or the interior of the park, turn a corner and ahead you can see extraordinary spectacles.

Humpback whales have been moving north on their annual migration  from Antarctica to the warm waters of the Coral Sea. On any day from late May to early August from the cliffs of the Royal you can see the  blow of the large breaths that they take,  then their huge backs rise out of the water and slip back down. You may spot the tail flapping and the lucky few will see youngsters launching themselves out of the water. Follow the Read More link to see a breach in slow motion.

But look up and there are astonishing birds …..eagles and falcons ……kites and kestrels . Follow the Read More link to  see them in action.
