Whale Watching

If you’re planning on staying with us from May to November you might be lucky enough to spot one of our mammal mates from your balcony breaching through the waves of Cronulla Beach.

For an even closer look – head towards Cape Solander at Kurnell, undoubtedly one of Sydney’s best whale watching spots, located only 15 minutes’ drive from Rydges Cronulla Beachside. June/July is the best time to see humpback whales as they migrate to warmer waters and whales have been known to swim as close as 200m from the coast.

Named after botanist Daniel Solander, Cape Solander features a lookout with a viewing platform – the perfect vantage point – along with information on whales seen in Sydney waters. Friendly volunteers are there to provide information throughout the season.

If you plan on a coastal walk through the park, then Cape Solander is a good starting point. It’s also a great spot for birdwatching or simply gazing at the clear horizon.

When: Cape Solander is breathtaking all year round yet June/July is the best time to spot whales

Where: Cape Solander Lookout, Kurnell

Cost: Free (park entry fee may apply)

How to get there: 15 minute drive from Rydges Cronulla Beachside

Ask our friendly front desk staff for directions.
