Margaret River Mouth

Star 4.7 (396 Google reviews)

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.

Excellent place to freshen up in the morning and enjoy "roaring of the sea" with morning view. The toilet facility is great and also has fresh drinking water. Lots of parking with sea view.

Lovely park area overlooking the beach with its amazing surf. Very well maintained and stacks of room to park.

Beautiful spot, just be sure you’re willing to get wet going through the river if you want a beach walk!

The Cape to Cape Walking Track crosses the mouth of the Margaret River at Prevelly. During dry times the crossing is easy sand, but we heard that when it is wet the trail is cut here, you will need to find another way across. The Viewpoint has carparking, and toilet facilites.
