For accommodation and tour operators in Augusta,
From June through to September, Augusta is alive with whale song. Protected from the north-westerly wind by Cape Leeuwin, the gentle conditions on Flinders Bay make it perfect for whale watching
The Southern Right and Humpback Whales can be seen off the coast as they undertake one of natures longest migrations from the polar waters to the warmer equatorial waters in the north. Whale watching charters offer a truly memorable encounter with the whales, dolphins and New Zealand Fur Seals from the nearby colony on the offshore islands. You can even witness these giants and their antics from the shore.
Whether you want to lie back and laze on the white sandy beach at Hamelin Bay, or get into some sports action, Augusta is the place to be. Why not drop a line from a dinghy on the placid waters of the Blackwood River. Or, perhaps a spot of sailing is more your style or maybe a relaxing ferry cruise up stream.
If windsurfing is your thing, then the tranquil river is perfect for beginners, while Flinders Bay will challenge the experts. Explore the dive trails of our coastline, including underwater caves, numerous wrecks and fascinating marine life. You are sure to enjoy the pristine waters of the region if you like to fish. The Blackwood River is renowned for its bream, herring and whiting. Out in the bay there are dhufish and snapper and many other species to test your skills.
