The tightknit community of Gracetown shares a lot of its character through the beach that bears its name. It’s size makes it intimate. Its natural state is raw. The wind buffets, but then so do the waves.

This is a town and a section of coast exposed and shaped by the push of weather that funnels between North Point and South Point – two landmark surf breaks between which sits the quieter Cowaramup Bay. Gracetown Beach is a small curve of sand crossed longitudinally by the Cape to Cape track, and latitudinally by Cowaramup Brook, a hotspot of local birdlife.

Rocks are ideal for clambering. Low scrub on the hill behind paints a picture of raw beauty and exposure. Just a short walk up the hill to town, the Gracetown General Store is a small provider that’s adopted the Margaret River region ethos of produce, people and place with delicious results. This is a beach-side pit-stop that retains its coastal character while offering a high-quality food experience. Don’t miss the pies – they sell out early.
