Located on the southern coast, seven hours' drive south east of Perth and 180 kilometres east of Albany, is the town of Bremer Bay. The town is rapidly becoming a popular fishing and holiday town. Bremer Bay offers spectacular beaches with a variety of activities including fishing, whale watching from July to November, swimming, surfing, museums and much more.
The town was named by Surveyor General John Septimus Roe in honour of Sir James Gordon Bremer, Captain of the Tamar, which sailed into Bremer in 1848. Bremer Bay is located at the mouth of the Bremer River, on the Wellstead Estuary, named after the first settler of the area, John Wellstead. Hotel and caravan park accommodation is available.
