Hopetoun

Hopetoun Motel and Chalets

When travelling in the great southern region be sure to stop into the delightful port town of Hopetoun. A 45 minute drive from Ravensthorpe, you won’t be disappointed.HopetounTucked away and off the beaten track, this really is a welcome change of pace. As it is not as popular a destination as Albany, Bremer Bay or Esperance, it was a real pleasure to visit. Not overly crowded (though all accommodation was full) but with everything one might need.Hopetoun

Formally a port for the Phillips River Goldfields it is now a sleepy town with a thriving community and a peaceful seaside vibe. The picturesque shorelines are breathtaking no matter the season and for all fishing enthusiasts you are sure to be thrilled at the spoils this part of the ocean shares.Hopetoun Motel and ChaletsPlenty of opportunities to explore the wonderful Fitzgerald River National Park either by car or bush walking. The Southern Ocean Road offers amazing coastal lookouts and Mason and Starvation Bay are perfect spots for fishing and swimming.HopetounWe stayed at the Hopetoun Motel which suited our needs perfectly as it was a short stay. There is also the Hopetoun Caravan park however this can fill up quickly in the high season months so be sure to book early.
Enjoy a drink and pub grub amongst the merry  locals at historic Aussie pub – Port Hotel. We opted to have dinner at the adjoining restaurant, Port Cafe and the food was flavoursome at reasonable prices. Nothing fancy, but decent food.HopetounEverything you need is in the town centre including the local store selling bait, a very impressive IGA, cafe, bakery, town library, visitors centre and a lovely playground if you happen to have grandies in tow.HopetounOr just pull up a pew on the huge jetty or the pristine white sands and watch all the interesting activities taking place from dusk till dawn.Hopetoun
A lovely spot for a short or extended stay, especially if you are en-route to Esperance, this does break up the trip nicely. Click here for more info

About Kerry Lane

I am 67 years of age and retired. I was born and bred in Perth but now live with my husband, Michael, in Albany, Western Australia. We have four children and six grandchildren. I have always enjoyed sports but my passion was basketball in which I played and attained State level. I coached at both junior and senior levels. I was also the team manager for the Perth Quit Breakers (now known as the Perth Lynx) for many years and was on the Board of the WA Basketball Association. I worked for Woodside Energy for 19 years before transferring to Darwin with my husband, also a Woodsider, who took up management of the Northern Territory operations of the company. I was the Private Secretary to the Chief Minister of the Northern Territory Govt. during my time there before retiring. My husband and I then travelled around Australia in a caravan for a year before finally settling for a seachange in Albany. We built a house at beautiful Goode Beach, joined the Albany Golf Club and started to explore our surrounds. We have made many friends since arriving in Albany and family and friends from near and far enjoy visiting and experiencing our part of the world. We are heavily involved in the Golf Club which keeps us busy. I enjoy reading, wining, dining, good friends and still love to travel both here in Oz and overseas.
