Hamelin Bay Beach

Star 4.7 (795 Google reviews)

A visit to stunning Hamelin Bay is a must-do on any holiday schedule in the region. A vast expanse of bright white sand, turquoise waters filled with marine life, and spectacular coastal cliff walks. The sheltered bay is great for swimming, snorkelling and fishing, and divers can explore the nearby shipwreck.
For the bird enthusiasts, walk to the freshwater lake near the caravan park and look for water birds including Grey Teal, Purple Swamphen and Grebes. Collard Sparrowhawk and little Eagle have been seen here too and visit the beach for possible sightings of Hooded Plover. In summer, the Sanderling and Bridled Tern are welcomed visitors.

You may also spot a stingray as they sometimes swim close to the shoreline. Keep in mind that these are wild creatures and maintain your distance to respect their space. Please do not touch, feed or disturb wildlife.

 Hamelin Bay is home to a caravan park, small shop, public toilets and boat ramp.

The view says a lot. During mid summer and hotter days the stingrays come closer to shore, you can actually walk next to them and attempt to give a gentle scroll (be super careful). Toilet facilities, ample parking but overflow on busy days. Trailer and boat parking. Lots of algae and rocky surface if you are planning to walk along the beach. Kids friendly. No much shade once you are on the beach or in the car park.

WOW this should be on everyones To Do list! We arrived early because we wanted a quieter time to see the rays, but no rays. I truly did not expect to see the rays, so we just walked on the beach. Around 09:00am we saw the first rays. They were just cruising around coming back. They' re so beautiful and elegant and super friendly! If you stand still and calm they will swim right by your feet.

Beach is fantastic. View is great. But no, we did not see any sting rays around noon this early September.

We got to the beach around 9am and saw a few stingrays swimming around. They were lovely and my kids loved the visit.
