Christmas at Bremer Bay (WA’s best beaches?)

If you haven’t been to Bremer Bay, you’ve been missing out. We’ve just spent 4 days enjoying the amazing coastline, 4WDing, spearfishing and relaxing. I’ll let the photos do the talking.

Overall, the trip was epic. However, it didn’t start off like that; we had a pretty bad run! We left at 2:45AM, and arrived on Bremer Bay beach at around 8AM. Several hours of driving at 110km/h with zero drama’s (minus one kangaroo that nearly lost a battle); things were going well.

However, after deflating the tyres I noticed our 4WD’s temperature gauge had started to rise a little; I’ve never seen it move before.

We had to stop several times on the way to camp to try and improve the cooling (viscous hub wasn’t kicking in properly and some of the coolant had been pumped out of the radiator), and eventually got moving properly. 5 minutes from camp and Daniel cleaned up a big Kangaroo.

After putting it out of its misery, we continued, and arrived at camp to a windy and overcast day. We proceeded to set up camp about 50 metres away from some shacks, and I managed to knock a sand peg directly through the shacks water supply.

I had no idea it was there, and wandered up with my tail between my legs to let the owners know.

Being Christmas Day, I knew we wouldn’t be able to get a joiner in town, but they were very good about it, and actually had a spare joiner. Luckily, from that moment on, things picked up, and we had a fantastic break away.

Unfortunately, all good things come to an end. I had to go back to work, but was glad of a break. We thought it was mad to drive so far just for a few days, but would do it again in a heartbeat.

    Bremer Bay really looks awesome! Where is the camp labelled “Could you ask for a better place?” located?

    Hi Kevin,

    I don’t actually know what the beach is called; it’s east of Bremer, and one of many you can explore.

    Thanks for all of your awesome information.
    I noticed you traveled with a dog.
    We are planning a trip Sydney-WA in September, with our 2 dogs. Tad worried about all of the national parks not allowing dogs. How did you go? Any information would be great!

  • Aaron Schubert July 8, 2018, 2:35 PM

    Hi Haylee,

    That was a friends dog, and most of Bremer Bay is not national park. Technically you can take them into the NP’s but they can’t exit your vehicle, which makes it almost impossible. Travelling with dogs is certainly a bit limiting; you are better off looking for stations/caravan parks that will take them, and stay there instead. Sorry I can’t be of more use

    Are you able to tell me where this beach is that your allowed to camp on? I cant find it anywhere online?


  • Aaron Schubert December 6, 2019, 6:46 PM

    Hey Alex,

    Across the inlet and keep going mate. Lots of places you can camp

    Hey Guys,
    Looking to do a trip down south to Bremer Bay… maybe camping at peppermint beach. Can you take camper trailers down to the beach to camp in? If not why not?

  • Aaron Schubert January 13, 2023, 6:45 PM

    Hey Andrew,

    I haven’t been to Bremer Bay for quite a while, but we have seen people down there with camper trailers. The beach can be really soft, and if you don’t have an adequate tow vehicle you could find yourself in a world of pain, but other than that you could give it a crack.

    We’ve only tented down there

    All the best
