For our first camping trip as a family, we decided to head down to Hamelin Bay, about 249kms on the south-west coast of WA. It is an amazing place, and somewhere I used to go to with my family when I was younger and wanted my own family to experience it.



Tent


We stayed at Hamelin Bay Holiday Park. They have something for every budget including powered and unpowered camping sites, chalets and room for caravans or RVs. The site is right on the beach and we walk straight out of the tent and there's the beach! AMAZING! There's also plenty of shade under the big trees.

The park facilities include toilets, showers, washing machines and BBQ's, along with a kiosk and playground.

Having the support and friendship of other mums who are living the same experience is important for the well-being of every mum. Here are 7 reasons to join a real-world mums group:
Hamelin Bay is famous for its giant stingrays, which are very friendly, meaning you can feed them by hand and I highly recommend you do this. Occasionally you may see some 'mermaids' laying on the beach in the water. The mermaids are usually local girls hired to lay on the beach and in the water in Hamelin Bay and entertain children and adults.

Hamelin Bay is a short drive to Augusta, so we took a trip to go fishing for a day on the jetty.



Tent


We also stopped in at Jewel Cave, which is also just a short drive away and did a tour inside the cave. This is something I also highly recommend you experience.
