We called in there back in 2015 and there was about 20 mothers with calf's in the bay, one with an albino baby.

Spent about 3 hours just watching them in their native environment, absolutely amazing and one of the most memorable things I have ever encountered.

I can not see any reason why one year would be any different to another so just get out there and do it.

There's a camping spot on the road in, just before the gate (which is locked overnight).
I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

Or you can find a secluded spot on a side road going north from the highway.

I might do a quick dash from Victoria, across SA and have a look at the whales. Any chance?

I hear a few have changed lanes at the check points and driven through, or driven around other ways, though it might be the go. Stephen may be ready to intercept me I suspect. Whale watching may be a recognized excuse. Not sure what Mr Marshall would say.

You could always complete your two week's quarantine at Stephen's place on the way through:-)

George, I can only presume you are fishing for a bite which is sort of funny. If you are serious then you really can stay where you are and suggest the exploroz admin notify police of your intentions.
