Hamelin Bay is an ideal location if you would like to be away from the main stream yet still only 20 minutes away from Margaret River and all the wineries, restaurants and tourist attractions.
The Karridale Tavern is only 8 kilometres away with a Roadhouse, Tavern and Restaurant. You can enjoy a night out during your stay without having a long distance to travel. The restaurant meals are so delicious that bookings are essential during peak times.
Visit the brand new Margaret River Sculpture Park, located only 5 minutes from Hamelin Bay. Kids and adults alike will be amazed by the large scale chainsaw sculptures nestled in the coastal landscape of 'the giant's garden'. Grab a coffee or lunch at Cafe Boranup, only a 10 minute drive through the amazing Boranup Forest. Visit the spectacular caves of the south west region.
Hamelin Bay Holiday Park is an ideal location for families as it is only a stroll away from the crystal clear waters of Hamelin Bay. Vacswim hold swimming lessons here in January so your kids don't have to miss their lessons just because you're on vacation. The park also has a large children's playground. Why not bring the kids' bikes along as there is a safe area to ride within the park. We also have a family friendly policy which encourages no music or noise after 10pm (excluding special occasions such as New Year's Eve)
Hamelin Bay is well known for its stingrays. The number and size of them are amazing. It's not uncommon to see some that are between 1 and 2 metres across. They have a habit of swimming around snorkellers at fairly close range, and certain times of the day they congregate around the boat ramp and feed off the scraps left by fisherman.
The interesting fish and plant life in the bay make it a great snorkelling spot, whatever your swimming level. There are shallow points for those who like to stay close to shore, as well as some great rocks and even shipwrecks for those that want to go out much further. Whatever your preference, the water is usually very clear and calm.
The bay area holds a feast of heavenly ocean delights such as crayfish. abalone, whiting, skippy and herring. (All subject to size and catch limits) You can launch your boat and venture out further to catch some delicious dhufish, pink snapper, and groper to name a few. A filleting table is also provided on the beach for your convenience. The cooler weather of March to May also brings salmon. Try your hand at catching one of these huge fish off the beach...they put up a good fight and will have even an amateur addicted to fishing.
