We frequent the Margaret River region often throughout the year; possibly too often! Mostly camping, but we do from time to time indulge in something a little different. This was one of those times. Stemming from a belated birthday gift and combining it with a current birthday, we made the most of our voucher and decided to stay somewhere different. Hamelin Bay.
Although our choice of seasons was not ideal, the sun still shone for us long enough to stroll along the beaches and take a wander up onto the cliff tops to explore. The scenery is stunning and the view from the boardwalk along the top of the limestone cliffs highlights the pristine beaches below; inviting perhaps in the the summer, but we happily kept our feet dry yet sandy in our strolls along the beach.
Hamelin Bay itself is not a lot more than the caravan park on the beach and a boat ramp, which is part of the attraction. But be sure to plan your stay. The nearest township being Augusta (15mins) or Margaret River (30mins).
We stayed in one of the beach view bungalows with views out across the bay, and we couldn’t have asked for a nicer place. However, the true camper in us couldn’t resist checking out the caravan park itself, and it looks great. The sites are in among tall trees and the terrain makes for a perfect kids adventure with plenty of places to explore and a playground to keep them entertained too. There’s also a shop on site which stocks the basics should you not want to take the drive to the nearest town.
Your Margaret River Region
Our trip was a short weekend visit, but we still managed to cram in a decent amount, with yet more added to the list for our next visit.
We love this part of our state, it’s such a contrasting landscape to our north, which is the normal destination for this time of year. From the tall trees of the Karri forrests to the rugged coastlines and the endless rows of vines lining the roads, you cant help but be tempted to come back for more.
From Busselton to Augusta and everywhere in between there are campsites galore to chose from, so why not check it out for yourself. Give us a call on 08 9409 8797 to book your camper trailer now and discover what “Your” Margaret River Region will be!
