The great humpback whales migration route intersects with Gage Roads, the channel between Wadjemup (Rottnest) Island and Fremantle. This gentle giant will be portrayed at 1:1 scale by West Australian artist Ross Potter, who will realistically render the cetacean with graphite on a very long roll of paper. Witness 'Whale' being progressively revealed over the course of the sixteen days.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding body and advisory body. Whale is supported by the State Government through the Department of Culture and the Arts. Whale is co-presented with the Western Australian Maritime Museum.
