  • Whale Watching in Sydney Harbour

    The humpback whale migration passing Sydney takes place between April and December each year. The season is split into two distinct sections depending on the direction of travel of the majority of whales at that time.

    The migrating population is named the Group 5 Southern Hemisphere humpback whale population or the Australian East coast humpbacks. As distinct from other humpback migration populations that travel along the West Australian and South African coasts.

    The distance from the coast of the whales is believed to be based on the movements of the ocean currents, primarily the East Australian Current. The East Australian Current is a strong southerly current that the humpback whales make use of during their southern migration. On the Northern migration the Humpback whales will often use the Inshore Northern current, which is a north flowing counter current to the EAC. The main purpose of the annual humpback migration is to breed.

    There are many companies that offer Whale Watching expeditions from Sydney Harbour,

  • Elysium Arctic at Maritime Museum

    In 2015 a team of explorers, photographers and scientists sailed through the High Arctic of Svalbard, Greenland and Iceland to document their unique environments. Together they created Elysium Arctic, a series of artworks capturing the icons of the polar north – majestic icebergs and glaciers, playful wildlife and stunning views of land and sea. Elysium Arctic also records the devastating impact of climate change in the earth's northernmost regions.

    The Elysium projects are run by Michael Aw, internationally acclaimed wildlife photographer, explorer and conservationist. Michael believes that art can inspire people to take action against climate change and save some of the most vulnerable places on earth.Braving sub-zero temperatures, sea ice and some very curious polar bears, the Elysium team has produced a breathtaking visual journey through the Arctic. Join them on their journey as you wander along the Darling Harbour foreshore – then pop into the museum to learn more about our Arctic region.
