Hamersley River

We were at Hamersley River in December 2017 and before making the long trip back to the metropolitan area we decided to drive out to Hamersley Beach at the mouth of the river.

This short river (40 kilometres) was named by John Forrest during his epic 1871 transcontinental exploration, most likely after his future wife’s family.

The dirt track led to the face of some dunes.

The dunes are detached from the beach and extend for about two kilometres north-south and just over over a kilometre east-west.

The way to the beach is well marked with large poles.

It was time to leave the beach and head home.

The National Park may be impressive but the river after which it is named is not much of a watercourse.

The rain started just before Jerramungup and continued as we made our way back to the metro area via Katanning, Wagin, Piesseville, and Armadale.
