Camden Sound

Camden Sound

Each year, up to 25,000 humpback whales embark upon the greatest migration on the planet, cruising the west coast to calve and raise their young in the shallow waters of Camden Sound.

The 700,000 hectare Lalang-garram/Camden Sound Marine Park hosts the world’s biggest humpback population and if you arrive between July and October, you’ll be treated to incredible encounters with these gentle giants as they feed and breed.

The marine park nurtures a host of marine species – spot minke whales, dolphins and dugongs too – and encompasses the phenomenal Montgomery Reef. Remarkably, this is the first marine park to be jointly managed by the WA state government and its traditional owners, the Dambimangari, who named the park Lalang-garram meaning “the saltwater as a spiritual place as well as a place of natural abundance”.
