Albino humpback whale spotted off Australian coast

Report by Andrea Lilly

A white humpback whale has been spotted off Australia's Gold Coast.

The rare albino whale named Migaloo, an Aboriginal name meaning 'White Fella,' is on his annual migration from north Queensland to the Antarctic.

Migaloo was first seen in Australia waters in 1991 as a juvenile.

The whale is part of the east Australian humpback population which numbers up to 17,000, the White Whale Research Centre has reported.
