Whale Song Information Centre is Now Open!

Please visit us in Coastlands Mall to find out more about the progress of the project.


Imagine, you’re standing on the seabed at 20 metres (60 feet) below the surface and looking up at a pod of Humpback Whales...


Whale Song is a life sized work of art devoted to the truly remarkable, and not often seen, Humpback whales which transverse our coast each year. The mission of this public art project is to tell the whales stories and enlighten people about the marine environment and how to look after it.
