Footage has emerged of an extremely rare white whale off the coast of Australia, and it could be the famous Migaloo.

Migaloo is a white humpback whose name was given to him by Aboriginal Elders, and means “white fella” – possibly the most Australian name ever.

Migaloo makes a 5,000-mile journey every year, from the Antarctic Ocean to Queensland and back again.

Oskar Peterson, who has been collating information on Migaloo since the ‘90s, isn’t convinced it is the famous whale, though.

The photos coming in are inconclusive,

He seems to be very shining white, while last year he had yellow colouring markings on him.

He believes it might be Migaloo Junior, another all-white calf.
