Open all year
Hamelin Bay Caravan Park offers a unique environment.
Where else could you stay and enjoy such a varied scope of activities including safe swimming, diving on wrecks and caves off shore, snorkelling, beach fishing, boating, surfing, beach combing and more, all within strolling distance of this family friendly park?
Hamelin Bay is a place where holiday memories are made, where kids can roam and explore to their heart’s delight, whether summer or winter you can catch the night’s dinner from the ocean. You can sit around a camp fire in the evening and spend the days relaxing within this extraordinary environment.
It is located in the beautiful National Park that hugs the incredibly picturesque coastline from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin.
Approximately 15kms north of Augusta and 30kms south of Margaret River, the park is established on a wide sweeping section of a beautiful bay where ships were once harboured in the timber milling days.
The park offers on-site accommodation in a variety of cabins, including reverse cycle air-conditioned beach cottages and cabins with ensuites. Over 150 generously sized caravan sites, powered and unpowered camping sites are also available.
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.
During the Christmas school holidays, Labour Day weekend and the Easter break, the Augusta Bakery van visits daily with a delicious array of gourmet bread, cakes, pies, pasties and sausage rolls. You can even order a birthday cake if you give 24 hours notice. The friendly bakery lady drives around the park tooting the horn to let you know she has arrived.
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) The boat ramp is currently being upgraded for the 2006/07 summer season. 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.
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.
Hamelin Bay Caravan 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 after 10pm and no noise at all after 11pm. (excluding special occasions such as New Year's Eve)
