Albany To Esperance

The distance between Esperance and Albany is 482kms. Travel west on the South Coast Highway to Ravensthorpe and visit Hopetoun, on the shores of Mary Ann Haven, along the way. Hopetoun’s beautiful beaches are a great spot to enjoy a swim before continuing on to Jerramungup or Ongerup.

One third of the Ravensthorpe Shire is production farmland and the other two thirds are made up of National Parks, Reserves and vacant Crown Land, all rich in native flora and fauna.

Continue your journey to Bremer Bay, located at the mouth of Bremer River on the Wellstead Estuary. A short walk from town, the main beach is popular with swimmers, as is sheltered John Cove. Whale watching can be enjoyed during the winter and spring months as southern right whales calve in the calm waters of the various bays. Point Ann is a good spot for watching these huge, gentle mammals.

Even if you are not going to Albany, it is still well worth the effort of travelling to the above mentioned towns, particularly if you enjoy fishing! There is great fishing offshore and from all of the beaches.
