Beach camping near Bremer Bay with hiking guide

Overview

It’s all about whale-watching in Bremer Bay. Hemmed in by beautiful beaches and dramatic coastal scenery, this south coast town is still best known for its underwater wonders. Orca, southern right, humpback, and sperm whales can all be spotted off the shores of Bremer Bay, while the deep-water Bremer Canyon is one of few places in the world to admire killer whales in their natural environment. Combine your whale-watching adventures with a coastal hike or road trip, then check into one of the holiday parks or caravan parks, enjoy beach camping along the coast, or escape the crowds at a tranquil Hipcamp. 

Where to go

Fitzgerald River National Park

Bremer Bay is the gateway to Fitzgerald River National Park, renowned for having some of the best bushwalking, birdwatching, and botanical diversity along Australia's southwest coast. Follow scenic walking trails through magnificent valleys of wildflowers, go kayaking and snorkelling at white-sand beaches, and spot whales from the lookouts at Point Ann and Barren’s Beach. The national park campground has unpowered sites suitable for small motorhomes and caravans.

Stirling Range National Park

West of Bremer Bay, head into the rugged mountains of the Stirling Ranges to hike and camp away from the crowds. Campers have options both in and around the Stirling Range National Park, while the nearby Porongurup National Park is famous for its giant boulders, dramatic mountain lookouts, and scenic drives. 

Rainbow Coast

Bremer Bay sits on the eastern edge of the Rainbow Coast, so-called for the frequent rainbows that brighten up its skies throughout winter. Albany and Denmark are the main towns, from where you’ll have access to a string of national parks. Spectacular views await at Torndirrup National Park and Walpole-Nornalup National Park, while West Cape Howe National Park and D’Entrecasteaux National Park have some of the region’s most scenic beach camping. 

When to go

Timing is everything for a whale-watching tour in Bremer Bay. January through April is the time to spot killer whales and orcas at Bremer Canyon, while southern right whales can be spotted from July through November. Coastal wildflowers are most vibrant in summer, but species bloom year-round. There’s good news for snorkellers, too—Southern Ocean water temperatures sit between 17°C and 21°C year-round.
