Augusta Hotel Motel, Augusta

Superb riverfront location on the banks of the Hardy Inlet, where the Blackwood River meets the sea.

The only hotel in the scenic coastal town of Augusta, it is located approximately 320 kilometres or a comfortable three and a half hour drive south of Perth, in Western Australia’s Margaret River Wine Region.

Places in the world where two oceans meet can be counted on the fingers of one hand. Augusta is one of them. The Indian Ocean and the Southern Ocean come together at Cape Leeuwin just south of Augusta – with dramatic effect, although most of Augusta’s seascapes are more tranquil. The region is dotted with peaceful bays and coves, perfect for walking, swimming, birdwatching and fishing.

The large elevated riverfront site in the centre of town provides tremendous inlet and ocean views and the hotel/motel offers a wide range of accommodation from motel units and self contained cottages to backpacker rooms.

The 52 motel units and four self contained cottages have free in-house movies and convenient access to the “Cumberland” a la carte restaurant specialising in local seafood and Jimmy’s Bar and Grill providing tender quality steaks, amongst other dishes, in a casual dining atmosphere.

On the foreshore, a parkland area leads onto a scenic riverside walk, fishing jetties and a boat ramp.

It is here, from the town jetty, that a local ferry conducts regular eco cruises of the Blackwood River. Experience a unique wilderness cruise in relaxed style as you encounter river dolphins and numerous species of flora and fauna. Private charters for parties, sundowners or longer cruises with light luncheons, barbecues and local wines can be arranged by the hotel reception.
