Moreton Bay’s whale watching season has been officially launched today, as tourism icon Brisbane Whale Watching celebrates its 25th Birthday.

Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchcliffe, State Member for Redcliffe and Health Minister Yvette D’Ath, and Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor Peter Flannery were aboard Brisbane Whale Watching’s vessel Eye Spy this morning to celebrate the launch and the businesses milestone.

“Over a quarter-of-a-century, Brisbane Whale Watching, Captain Kerry and Eye-Spy have become icons of Brisbane’s tourism industry,” Mr Hinchliffe says.

“The breathtaking sight of whales breaching on Moreton Bay was a popular visitor experience for many of the 1.5 million international tourists per year sightseeing in Brisbane before the pandemic.

“We know the closure of the international border has been tough on local tourism businesses like Brisbane Whale Watching. That’s why we’re encouraging Queenslanders and interstate visitors to reconnect with Moreton Bay and its magnificent humpback highway this whale watching season.

“Brisbane Whale Watching in its silver anniversary year is a great example of resilience and helping Queensland tourism to rebuild better.

“It was terrific to see Captain Kerry take the first booking of our Brisbane Holiday Dollars initiative and then benefit from a further 650 bookings, as part of the Palaszczuk Government’s Economic Recovery Plan.”
