A rare white humpback whale has been spotted off the coast of Queensland on Monday, and whale watchers are hoping it is Australia's famous whale Migaloo.
Migaloo, a name giving by Aboriginal Elders that means "white fella," is one member of a rare group of white whales that have been spotted swimming in Australian waters.
On Monday, the white whale was first spotted by a Seven News television helicopter at around 11 a.m. If confirmed, this would be the first sighting of Migaloo since his migration up the east coast of Australia last year.
