Things to do at Port Gregory

Port Gregory is a great little town to get away from it all and to sit back and relax.  If you do feel like venturing out there here are a few things to do in Gregory:

Visit Pink Lake

Hutt Lagoon (more commonly known as Pink Lake) is a popular tourist attraction where travellers driving by can pull up and view the amazing colours of this natural phenomenon where the minerals in the water combined with the elements turn the lake into a pink colour. 

Depending on the time of day and the climate conditions, the lake can change from dark pink to light pink and even to a darker purple colour.  This attraction is definitely worth a look especially if you’re heading north along the coast to Kalbarri.

Go Fishing

Port Gregory is known to produce some great fishing.  You have the option to fish off the beach or the jetty.  Beach fishing is great for the likes of whiting, herring, tailor, flathead and bream.  For those that are willing to put in the hours, much larger species such as mulloway can be caught from the beach.

If you have a boat then offshore fishing at Gregory is definitely worthwhile.  Launching at the beach you can head out to catch a number of different species, including pink snapper, dhufish and baldchin groper just to name a few.

Go 4WDing

If you have a 4WD then there is some great 4WDing to be had at Port Gregory.  Starting at the beach you can 4WD north or south along the coast.

Go Swimming or Snorkelling

If you’re keen on a dip then the beaches are great for a swim.  In between the beach and the outer reef also has some nice spots for snorkelling too.

Check out the dolphins

Dolphins are often seen along the beaches at Port Gregory.  Light offshore breezes and a low swell make the ideal conditions to take a stroll along the beach looking for dolphins cruising along the shoreline.

Check out the jetty

There is a jetty located on the foreshore for boats to dock against.  At night it’s worth checking out the jetty as you often see a range of different fish species cruise by including big stingrays.  The lights also attract squid in so remember to pack your squid jig if you’re keen on some squid fishing:)
