Murchison River and
the Indian Ocean and
bordered by sandstone
cliffs and ancient river gorges, this
is a pretty spot. Surfing, climbing,
hiking and fishing are the main
drawcards, but it’s also a lovely
place just to take it easy. Fish along
the river and coastal cliffs and watch
the surfers from Jakes Point. There’s
accommodation ranging from
camping to resorts and you don’t
have to look far for good food and
coffee. Check out the local artwork,
relax on the foreshore and watch
the boats navigating the tricky river
mouth during a big swell. Sunset
any night, sundowner in hand,
is popular along the foreshore for
watching the fishing boats return
from a day on the water.
