Last chance to whale watch in 2018

Spring sees Humpback Whales begin their annual

migration southbound from the warmer tropical waters

of Queensland, having bred and given birth. It’s an exciting

time to go whale watching from Pittwater and see young

calves and mothers swim together. Humpback whales

migrate around 5000km on average – one of the longest

migratory journeys of any mammal on Earth. Fantasea

Cruising has scheduled three final Whale Watching Cruises

for 2018 (three hours duration) leaving Palm Beach (8.45am)

and Patonga (9.15am); dates are Sunday 30th September;

Sunday 7th October; Sunday 14th October. It’s a great school

holidays activity – hear an educational talk, plus visit the

local seal colony at via Barrenjoey headland. And they offer

a ‘whale watching guarantee’ – if no whales are spotted,

you can return for free. Adult tickets $65; kids $30. Family

passes available. More info 9974 2411 or fantasea.com.au

Manly Arts Festival

celebrating 25 years

The 25th annual Manly Arts

Festival will ignite the Northern

Beaches from September 7

with an eclectic mix of exciting

events featuring prominent

musicians and visual artists –

with a highlight being Manly

Art Gallery & Museum’s exhibition

‘Octennial: Reg Mombassa

& Peter O’Doherty’ (see our

feature on page 36). This will

include Mombassa’s iconic

allegorical landscapes and

O’Doherty’s studies of deceptively

mundane domestic and

suburban Australian scenes as

well as a Music Lounge series

of live music concerts. Manly

Arts Festival began in 1994 and

has since grown into one of

the State’s leading communitybased

arts festivals, attracting

more than 15,000 visitors each

year. The official launch will

take place at MAG&M (close

by Manly Wharf) on Friday 7

September, from 6 – 8pm. More
