Meanwhile, this year's final Whale Trail Aboriginal Cultural Experience will be held at the beautiful Corcora Beach on Sunday, October 23.
Join the Duurunu Miru Dance Group from 11.30am-12.30pm on the sand on the edge of Twofold Bay - a rich and historic feeding ground for our whales.
Duurunu Miru is an Aboriginal dance group that tells stories of Dhawa/Thaua Country in the Yuin Nation.
It's a multi-generational dance group, respected in the local community for developing leadership and cultural skills and sharing knowledge among young people.
They regularly perform and tell their stories around the region, and have performed at Dance Rites at the Sydney Opera House.
Sunday's program will include a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony, a dance performance and a local speaker to highlight the rich cultural history of this place and the ancient and special cultural connections the Yuin people have to whales.
Take a chair or picnic blanket to sit on as you enjoy the celebration.
