Policy: The whales are scattered on a five hundred-long stretch of beach at Tobys Inlet near the tourist town of Dunsborough, 285 kilometers south of Perth, the Ministry of Biodiversity and Conservation says.

Another 20 whales are stranded in a shallow one and a half kilometers from the beach.

Such incidents are not uncommon. In July, around a hundred pilot whales died after a two-day rescue attempt failed at Cheynes Beach at the former Albany whaling station, 355 kilometers south-west of the stranding in Dunsborough.
