Dongara and Port Denison are located on the coast 4 hours’ drive north of Perth. With their friendly, relaxed atmosphere, tree-lined main street, historic buildings and excellent beaches, the twin towns make a perfect all year round holiday destination.

The beautiful beaches and warm weather provide perfect conditions for all sorts of water sports, from swimming and relaxing on the beach to sailing and windsurfing.

The Fisherman’s Lookout at Port Denison has a panoramic view of Port Denison and one of the largest fishing boat harbours in the state. The area offers the fishermen plenty of sport with an abundance of fish including tailor, snapper, whiting and dhufish. Dongara and Port Denison are also often referred to as the “Rock Lobster Capital”, for the many magnificent crustaceans caught in season.

During spring Dongara and Port Denison are ideal as a base from which to tour the magnificent wildflower country in the surrounding area.

A variety of accommodation is available, ranging from full service motels, holiday flats, caravan parks, campers’ parks and nearby farm stays.

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.
