Whale watching app for NSW

by on Apr.11, 2012, under Magazine, Mammals, Tools and Technology

Humpback migration will be starting soon on the East coast of NSW.  The “Whales NSW” app is the official whale watching guide to New South Wales, developed by NSW National Parks and Wildlife.  It’s available for both iOS and Android.

The app is free, and according to the official summary, you can learn about different whale species you might see, see tips for spotting them, get the latest whale sightings, record your own sightings and connect with other whale watchers via the Wild About Whales Twitter and Facebook accounts.

I’ve been using the Android version since last year and it’s very handy.  I can find out if whales are approaching Sydney by checking the sighting reports from north or south of here.  Of course, this only works if people actually post their sightings!
