Looking for a holiday in a unique West Australian coastal hideaway? The Hamelin Outback Station Stay at Bush Heritage’s Hamelin Reserve on Malgana Country in Western Australia opened last month with a new team and a refresh!
Hamelin is situated next to the Shark Bay World Heritage Area and supports some 240 bird species (about 35% of Australia’s total), as well as many plants, reptiles and mammals. For anybody who has not witnessed the breadth of beauty offered by this unique part of the world, Hamelin Station Stay provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy its magnificence.
There is a range of accommodation options for all types of travelers. From the historic pastoral station shearer’s quarters, to caravan and tent sites set amongst the gorgeous scenery. It’s also close to the dolphins of Monkey Mia, Francois Peron National Park, and Steep Point, the most westerly point in Australia.
The stay also provides opportunities for people to learn about what Bush Heritage are doing out in the field to protect Hamelin’s landscapes and its many inhabitants.
You’ll learn fascinating insights into the unique ecosystems on reserve and the threats they face. Hamelin Pool is home to the most extensive living Stromatolite system in the world, not far from the accommodation, offering opportunities to learn about these incredible modern examples of the earliest known life forms on Earth.
Hamelin adds a conservation buffer to the Shark Bay World Heritage Area, extending a corridor of nature reserves from Shark Bay via Toolonga Nature Reserve, through crown land to our Eurardy Reserve and then Kalbarri National Park – a span of over 200km.
The Easter weekend was a great start to the season and with around 6000 visitors per year, the new team is preparing for a big year ahead.
The outgoing and dedicated Reserve Manager’s, Ken and Michelle Judd, and Field Officer Dean Mowat have handed the baton over to the new Station Stay Manager, Susi Allen, supported by Emily Allen and Annie Grundy.
Thank you to Jeff Allen and Bill Currans for their extra support!
The Hamelin Outback Station Stay opens from April to October every year. To book visit HamelinStationStay.com.au.
