Airlie Road lookout point forms part of our KZN Whale Heritage Route Experience.
Which starts at the Maritime Museum:
At The Whale History Museum, situated at the Maritime Museum visitors can stroll through the Maritime Museum exploring the boats as well as experience the Whaling History Exhibition, giving insight on where our Whale Story started to where we have now come to a Conservation Era where all whales, dolphins and sea life are protected and admired. Opportunity is given to local communities to involve themselves in Whale Eco Tourism.
Wilsons Wharf – Whale Watching:
Wilson’s Wharf is where you can enjoy a Cruise through the harbour, go Whale Watching up close or enjoy a relaxing beverage or meal at one of the vibey Restaurants.
Bluff View Points:
First stop is Airlie Road.
The Ethekwini municipality is currently in progress with Netford Road and the other future lookout points are:
Treasure Beach; WESSA; Ansteys Beach; Brighton Beach; Garvies Beach; and Finnemore Place – 364 Stairs to the forgotten Beach and a scenic view of the Old Whaling Station – Accessible by foot only.
WESSA Treasure Beach – The Treasure Beach Environmental Education Centre on Durban’s Bluff is rich in history and ecological importance. It is also the site of the original radar tracking station for coastal defence during World War 2.
The roof of the building is a viewpoint to watch Whales and Dolphins moving up and down our coast.
Our vision for the Old Whaling Station is to have it declared a Museum – A museum for our Whaling Heritage; our Military and Multi-Cultural History. To create an International Tourism Attraction.
The Wildlands Whale Time Project’s goal is to bring Science, Conservation, Tourism and Community together around this iconic species.
