we had the most fun sliding down the dunes into the river on the back side of the beach where the river cuts through to the ocean. Easy parking but gets thick on weekends and holidays.

Iconic Margaret River - even in the rain and the wind. The mouth of the river was interesting, and worth visiting

Came here after visiting the surfer's point. There's plenty of parking space and the place aren't crowded. Very nice viewpoints and kids can play at the river mouth. There's restroom next to the carpark which is really convenient.

lovely to see where the River reaches the Ocean, not much else around but stunning views of the white sands and blue skies.

Often the river is blocked by a sand bar - kids can be paddling in it. Close to surfers point to see the surfers and canoe tours go down the river. The beach itself certainly isn't the best quality sand in the region but its...More

Easily accessed from car park. Shallow river paddling or swimming, good for children. Older children love the sea and on calmer days the surf. Lifeguard on duty during summer holidays

Yes most definitely. There was a board near the walkway showing species, sizes and bag limits allowed. There was a man fishing at the mouth of the river while we were there. Such z lovely spot. Enjoy!
