I’m often called a ‘charming fishing village’, I’m around  4 hours from my state’s capital city.

I’m famous for my rock lobsters. 

The tourist park (see the link below) says, ‘A 4wd is required to access some of the better beaches north of (7 Mile Beach where you can put a small boat in or fish from the beach. These fishing spots tend to be the most productive. The main species are Whiting, Tailor, Mulloway, Skippy and Dhufish’

What’s To Do?

I’m a place where you can do ‘something or nothing’. It’s an outdoor lifestyle that is casual and relaxed. Leave the hectic lifestyle and relax, explore, swim, snorkel or fish.
During wildflower season, you can walk along trails to see the brilliant displays.
Order some fish and chips (or seafood) or enjoy at picnic at the Marina – the choice is yours.

I offer a chilled out lifestyle in a unique location.
