Shhhhh…. don’t tell anyone how awesome Augusta is!
If you’re keen on spectacular coastal scenery with endless activities, then you need to book your accommodation in Augusta and experience the laid-back country lifestyle and awe-inspiring natural attractions of this South-West gem for yourself.
Its idyllic location just 320kms south of Perth and only half an hour from Margaret River make it a favourite amongst those in the know.
Situated at the mouth of the Blackwood River and surrounded by ocean on two sides and wilderness national park on the other, Augusta’s peaceful serenity, dramatic juxtaposition of wild coastline and sheltered bays and plentiful attractions make it the perfect accommodation choice for families and adventure seekers alike.
The town is sheltered by Flinders Bay and overlooks the Hardy Inlet and Hamelin Bay where you’ll find world-class watersports and fishing opportunities. Whale watching is another of Augusta’s main attractions, with these magnificent mammals stopping in Flinders Bay from June to August to feed, breed and play.
The Indian and Southern Oceans meet at Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse, one of Augusta’s best-known landmarks which also marks the start (or the end) of the famous Cape to Cape Track which winds along 135kms of breathtaking coastal trails. Other nearby attractions include Boranup Forest, Jewel Cave, Molloy Island and Foul Bay where you can see friendly stingrays hoping for a feed from the local fishermen. None of this is too far from your Augusta accommodation.
This little gem is easily accessible from nearby South-West towns like Dunsborough, Yallingup and Busselton and there are plenty of Augusta accommodation options to choose from, including hotels (with breathtaking views of course), chalets, villas, studio apartments and bed and breakfasts.
