Hopetoun

HOPETOUN IS A FANTASTIC WATERFRONT HOLIDAY DESTINATION.

Holiday makers return each year to enjoy the relaxed pace of Hopetoun, the pristine beaches, the picturesque scenery, the abundance of water activities and of course the easy access to the Fitzgerald River National Park. Great accommodation, bakery, cafes, shops and town facilities are just a stroll to Hopetoun’s endless unspoiled beaches.

The Hopetoun Foreshore/Groyne is located on the main street of Hopetoun.  Find shelters, toilet facilities and grassed areas suitable for picnics & bbq's whilst enjoying a swim at the bay.  Later watch the sun setting over the ocean and East Mt Barren.

The "Groyne" is the present breakwater which replaced the old jetty, here holiday makers and locals alike launch their boats or fish off of the jetty and rocks while children play on the pontoon in the bay, paddle boarders’ cruise the coastline, and kite surfers enjoy the break.  Surf is around, with a bit of swell, your bound to get your board wet and pick up some good waves.
