There is a sculptural quality to the Rivermouth landscape. This topography moves. As the Margaret River level rises and falls with the movement of seasons and changes in the volumes of water flowing from the catchment some 60 kilometres up river, her banks expand and contract, shaping the surrounding sand banks and altering her course as she spills into the ocean at Rivermouth beach.
The river has a calm, brackish quality at odds with the wild, salt pound of waves dumping on the shore. It’s a contrast played out by the people who come here. Young kids on boogie boards paddling the river. Young guns on short boards racing the wave face as it curls toward rock and shore. Around the closest point, rockpools call to young explorers, looked over by Layla – Russell Sheridan’s vivid sculpture of a woman breastfeeding a baby whale. At the other end of the beach toward Cape Mentelle, day trekkers completing a section of the Cape to Cape track descend to soft sand and a river crossing for the day’s final push.

Ocean side for those who like waves and surfing. River side for little kids and no swimmers.

My partner and I stopped by the Margaret river mouth as a last minute sightseeing decision and we were so impressed with the beautiful views it has to offer. The water in the river mouth is calm and the beach is beautiful. Would definitely recommend you stop here if you’re heading down south
