Hamelin Station, on the shores of the Shark Bay World Heritage area, features 32 km of coastline alongside Hamelin Pool, site of those extraordinary living fossils the stromatolites. Close by are the dolphins of Monkey Mia, Francois Peron National Park, and Steep Point, the most westerly point in Australia. The 202,000 ha property is owned by Bush Heritage Australia.

Immerse yourself in the Shark Bay outback experience in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. Hamelin Station offers guests two options: the historic shearers quarters, rustic on the outside, cleanly modern on the inside; or a range of appealing sites for caravans and campers in beautiful bush settings, separated by nature corridors and with two fire pits.

The communal shearers kitchen is large, modern, well equipped and maintained, with a dining area, large stone fireplace, and an extensive covered barbecue area for those sunset drinks and meals. A second camp kitchen features gas burners and barbecue, hot and cold water, tables and chairs. The large modern showers and toilets, with disabled access, are cleaned and maintained to the highest standards.

At Hamelin Station, everything you need is just 1 km off the main sealed road. A wonderful destination in itself, Hamelin Station is the ideal base for exploring the many spectacular attractions of the Shark Bay World Heritage area. See what you can do at Hamelin Station – you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Hamelin Station Reserve

Hamelin Station is a 202,000 hectare property, situated on 32 kilometres of coast line and bordering the Shark Bay World Heritage area. In March 2015 Bush Heritage Australia acquired Hamelin Station Reserve. It is an area of outstanding conservation value, located in the mid-west region of Western Australia. The reserve extends the protection of the Shark Bay World Heritage Area by a substantial 10%. It also helps to protect Hamelin Pool, one of the only two places in the world where living marine stromatolites are known to occur.

Shark Bay was inscribed on the World Heritage list in 1991 for its natural heritage values. It satisfied all four of the natural criteria for World Heritage listing covering 2.2 million hectares on the Northwest coast of Western Australia. Complex interactions between the plants, the climate and the marine environment have allowed ‘living fossils’, stromatolites, to exist at Hamelin Pool.

Bush Heritage Australia is a National Non-Government Conservation organisation that thru the generous donations of its supporters across Australia and the world works to protect Australia’s unique biodiversity and natural landscapes, visit www.bushheritage.org.au for more information on Bush Heritage.
