“What a great investment”

Augusta Boat Harbour
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This is an amazing investment for the Augusta community. It makes whale watching tours so much easier, the boat ramps, parking and facilities are amazing. The water is so clear you can see fish and stingrays in the water and you can fish off the marina rocks. Excellent.

What a great investment in a small town. Large, modern and accessible. Heaps and parking and was a rough day and still accessible. Fishing around on the rocks although no services (food etc) on site. Great asset for the town.

The Boat Harbour is located on Flinders Bay, approximately 4.5km south of the town of Augusta and its stated to be the only established boating facility located along the 430 kilometres of coastline between Busselton and Albany that can provide safe, short term facilities for commercial and recreational boats. Construction was completed in 2014 after a three year effort and over $36m cost. There are approx 750m of breakwaters, boat launching facilities, a service wharf, forty boat pens, navigation aids, car-and-trailer parking facilities, amenities buildings and a pavilion, seating and tables, bike racks and 24hr CCTV. It is an excellent engineering construction. Good walks, good views, pleasant site for a BBQ or picnic. Unisex toilets which can be a little disconcerting to users when opposite sexes are in adjacent cubicles, AND, they need cleaning. I read somewhere that a café will be established; I wonder if anyone could possibly make a reasonable income from such a facility. Well worth the stop.

This boat harbour has been build by royalties for regions and it is definitely built with the future in mind it is HUGE! The local abalone industry is planning to have a restaurant there however it is not yet built . there were fishing vessels and local tourist boats in the harbour when I visited. It had a huge sea wall that will keep anything safe.

Being a local I often see people stop at an attraction, take a quick look around and then leave because they think there's nothing worth looking at. Oh dear! If only they'd spend a bit more time to 'get the vibe' of a place, they might be surprised at what's actually there. For instance, the Augusta Boat Harbour has more than boat pens, a safe place to moor a boat and a stunning location. There's also a small, but well placed viewing platform just after entering the entry road, so park in the first parking area and walk about 50 metres along the path to the right. Gaze out to sea, looking for dolphins and whales (in season*), fishing boats and more. Look carefully down onto the rocks and you may spot a seal or two. Look up and see a huge variety of birds from pelicans to cormorants and gulls. Take a walk along the outer harbour wall path and check out the abalone boats and various other vessels. If you need to use the toilet, go ahead, and have a chuckle about how breezy it is inside the cubicles. That wind is coming straight off the southern ocean, possibly the cleanest air you'll ever breath if it's come from Antarctica. And if you want to explore further, there's a terrific walking path that links the harbour to Flinders Bay. Oh! almost forgot to mention that although the cafe facilities haven't been built yet, there is often a little coffee van serving great coffee near the beautifully maintained picnic area and barbeque facilities. *During the whale migration season, there are several Whale Watching Boats that operate out of Augusta Harbour.
