My partner and I decided to go down south for a couple of nights and had no real plans on where to stay. Luck would have it that we rolled into this place after a long search of nice places that allowed tents and didn't feel as though we where staying in a 5 star holiday park.
We like to get closer to nature rather than having lush green grass, swimming pools and and the essentials from home. If we wanted this then we would stay in a hotel or resort and would do so over seas rather than in WA. So this place was perfect as it was peaceful and felt like we where sleeping out in the bush while still having the essential requirements like hot showers and toilets. Plus the kitchen was an added bonus that we didn't expect.
The best part was the fishing.If you want to catch lots of fish and be able to feed yourself on what you catch then this place is the best place to stay at. In 1 morning we caught over a dozen Whiting, Herring and skippies.
I am sure we will be back here again next time we go down south.

- Located around 20km north of Augusta and 40kms south of Margaret River, Hamelin Bay is well known for its stingrays. The number and size of them are amazing. You will be in awe of these inquisitive creatures. They will casually swim alongside you, and on some occasions even feed out of your hand. This is an incredible free experience, with no huge crowds and no appointment necessary! Hamelin Bay Holiday Park offers over 100 camping sites, with a mix of powered and unpowered. The park also has several caravan sites. If you prefer onsite accommodation then Hamelin Bay Holiday Park offers four different styles of cabins and cottages. ... more less
