Population 239

Bremer Bay on the south coast is a wide expanse of crystal-clear blue water and striking white sand. The main beach, only a ten-minute walk from the town, has a sheltered cove for swimming and fishing. Just north of Bremer Bay is the magnificent Fitzgerald River National Park with its four rivers, dramatic gorges, wide sand plains, rugged cliffs, pebbly beaches and spectacular displays of wildflowers between August and October.
