A rare white whale has been spotted off Australia


A rare white humpback whale has been spotted off Australia's Gold Coast for the first time this year on his annual migration.

The whale, named Migaloo - Aboriginal for "white fella" - was the first all-white humpback ever to be seen when he was first spotted in Australian waters in 1991.

Every year Migaloo and some 17,000 other humpbacks make the journey to and from the tropical waters of northern Australia to the Antarctic.
