Stingrays of Hamelin Bay
If you wander down to the old jetty or boat ramp at Hamelin Bay, you will notice black shadows moving throught the water close to shore. Don't panic, they are just the stingrays who have become somewhat of a tourist attraction! We do not encourage patting and feeding of the stingrays, athough you are more than welcome to take plenty of photos. The stingrays always have hungry tummies and they just love a feed of fresh fish (no bait please). They can be seen most days during summer and occassionally during the winter months.
