Telegraph StationThe Old Telegraph Station

Bremer Bay came into existence when it was chosen as one of the Telegraph Station sites of the Overland Telegraph. The first Station was built in 1875 and opened for telegraphic traffic on the 8th May 1876. The original building burnt down and was replaced with the existing stone structure in 1896. In 2019 the Old Telegraph Station was completely renovated by a local family and is now a cafe and coffee shop with a focus on using fresh local produce and home baked goods!

Paperbarks Picnic Area

Located opposite the change rooms at John Cove. Upgrades were completed in 2018 and include a new shelter, gas barbeques and a fabulous new under 6 year old nature based play ground.


Numerous beaches such as Little Boat Harbour, Blossoms Beach, Short Beach as well as Fishery Beach at the Marina are excellent swimming spots. John Cove is the main swimming only area, where classes are held in summer. The endless stretch of striking white sand and the wide expanse of crystal blue water make all water sports memorable.


Surfing is another popular pastime, with excellent waves generally available at Native Dog Beach (Please note there is a rip at this site). Dependant on conditions and swell, waves are also found at Peppermint Beach, Bremer Beach and Blossoms Beach (which is suitable for beginners).


Fishing can be enjoyed both on and off shore, with species ranging from herring, skippy and salmon, to deep water varieties such as nannygai, snapper, groper and a host of others. Fishing sites are located from Flat Rock (John Cove) around the peninsula to Reef Beach and the Pallinup estuary. The Bremer River also provides for bream, mullet, crabs and prawns in season with a small boat launching pad at Muirs Point.
