Augusta is a beautiful fishing town set on Cape Leeuwin, the most south-western point of Western Australia, where the Indian Ocean and Southern Oceans meet.

The coastline and countryside surrounding Augusta is diverse and pristine with many places to escape and find solitude. Whales can be found off the Augusta coast from June to December. Two charters operate whale watching tours, although whales can easily be spotted from the historic Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse which is open to the public.

Running through Augusta, the Blackwood River offers a wide range of aquatic sports including waterskiing, fishing, boating and, for the less energetic, a ferry cruise up the river to explore historic caves and discover the area’s birdlife.

The Augusta golf course has spectacular views looking out across the Indian Ocean. There is a nine-hole course available if you just want a quick round.

Perfect for a family holiday, Augusta has affordable hotel/motel and chalet type accommodation.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
