Come and celebrate the world's largest population of Humpback whales in Broome SUNDAY 7 JUNE
Come down to Cable Beach to celebrate the inaugural Kimberley Whale Festival in Broome on Sunday the 7th of June!
The Whale Festival is a celebration of the world's largest population of Humpback whales, and a forum to promote the wonders and bio-diversity of the Kimberley Coast.
Events include forming a life-sized human whale on the beach for an aerial photograph (please wear blue for this if you can), an illustration competition for kids, and photography competition for adults (with great prizes including a whale watching trip for 2 with Sentosa Charters), a fish-cake cook-off at Matso's (also with great prizes), and whale and wildlife films in the evening. As part of the show "The Hopeful 3" and "Shadow Play" will be playing at Matsos from 12 - 5.30pm.
Organisers would like to note that this event is not an anti-gas rally, but a celebration of the world's largest population of Humpback whales, and a forum to promote the wonders and bio-diversity of the Kimberley Coast.
Organisers hope that the Whale Festival will become an iconic event on the Kimberley calendar well into the future.
This is a great family day out, and a celebration of the magnificent Western Australian Humpback Whales.
