Margaret River Mouth

Star 4.7 (503 Google reviews)

There is a sculptural quality to the Rivermouth landscape. This topography moves. As the Margaret River level rises and falls with the movement of seasons and changes in the volumes of water flowing from the catchment some 60 kilometres up river, her banks expand and contract, shaping the surrounding sand banks and altering her course as she spills into the ocean at Rivermouth beach.
The river has a calm, brackish quality at odds with the wild, salt pound of waves dumping on the shore. It’s a contrast played out by the people who come here. Young kids on boogie boards paddling the river. Young guns on short boards racing the wave face as it curls toward rock and shore. Around the closest point, rockpools call to young explorers, looked over by Layla – Russell Sheridan’s vivid sculpture of a woman breastfeeding a baby whale. At the other end of the beach toward Cape Mentelle, day trekkers completing a section of the Cape to Cape track descend to soft sand and a river crossing for the day’s final push.

Absolutely stunning clear water. Beautiful lime stone sand. Plenty of young surfers having fun in the waves. A fantastic place on a day when the wind is low.

Amazing place .You can feel the power of the waves crashing over the rocks and onto the beach. When we visited the wind was gusting so beach was lovely to look at but flying sand made it impossible to sit on the beach. Never the less the white foamed waves contrasting with the blue sea was a spectacal to be seen.

Stunning views of the coast and a great vantage point for the mouth of the river. The rocks around the beach are easy to navigate and make for some good photo opportunities.

If you are looking for a perfect beach package for kids and adults, this is best place in Margaret River. Parking is bit tough to find in busy summer season. Toilets available. Hiking option as well.
