Dolphins on Durras Beach

It is quite common to see Dolphins on Durras Beach on the south coast of NSW. Though not always there, it is always worth while keeping a look out for them. Usually just off shore or surfing the waves of Durras Beach. It is quite an experience to go surfing off Durras Beach and suddenly be surrounded by a pod of inquisitive dolphins. Another place we often see them is on the Depot Beach to Pebbly Beach walk. (We have special bushwalking and beachwalking guide sheets for all our guests.)

The video below features some Bottle Nose Dolphins playing just a few metres off  Calm Corner at the northern end of Durras Beach. The Bottle Nose Dolphins can weigh up to 200 kilograms and grow up to 2.5 metres in length. Being mammals, they also suckle their young. Not sure what they were doing on this occasion, but from their behaviour, it looks like they were having a good feed of something!
