Port Gregory & Surrounds
The Pink Lake – Hutt Lagoon, is a wide expanse of pink water caused by the naturally occurring algae ‘Dunaliella Salina’ which produces the orange-red colouring pigment called ‘Beta Carotene’. Depending on the weather, the lagoon changes colour from light pink to a darker pink, sometimes even lilac and a deep purple. Find out even more about the Lake and the history of Port Gregory on one of our Buggy Tours!
Swim in the crystal clear waters of the exquisite lagoon that is Port Gregory Beach, or snorkel over to the coral reef. Fish from the beach or boat for Whiting, Tailor, Mulloway, Snapper, Coral Trout, Dhufish, Bluebone or troll for Mackerel. Please note that there are dates you can’t fish for dermesal species from a boat off Port Gregory, so please check out the rules here.
Walk or 4WD along the beach to Nobby’s Hole where the natural reef meets the beach. Picnic at the mouth of the Hutt River, watch dolphins and whales at play from the relaxed shores of Port Gregory.
It’s easy to base yourself in Port Gregory and do day trips to the Kalbarri National Park which includes the amazing Skywalk and Nature’s Window. For the more adventurous you can hike the Loop and Z bend trails. The trip to the national park will take you about an hour and a half from here. There’s plenty of places to grab a meal or bite to eat in Kalbarri, check it the Visitor Centre website to help plan your trip.
Lynton Station is just 5kms from Port Gregory. It’s a great place to explore. Walk up the top of the hill to see the statue of Mr Simkin on his bike! Check out Sanford House and the old convict ruins from the days where Lynton was a Convict Hiring Depot. Don’t miss out on the memorabilia in the white barn!
There is also Lucky Bay and the Wagoe Cliffs which can be reached by 4WD from Balline Road toward Kalbarri. Great for beach days and fishing.
