Private Campground - Western Australia

Experience nature’s extraordinary.

Located approximately 190km north of Broome, on Western Australia’s Dampier Peninsula, Pender Bay is a natural maternity ward and resting ground for humpback whales. 

You will be astounded by the sheer number of these majestic creatures that congregate in Pender Bay at the northern extent of their annual migration, from July to mid-November. Watching from land or on the water, the experience is unforgettable.

A brilliant fishing destination.

Aside from whale watching, there is so much to see and do. Known for its very high marine biodiversity, Pender Bay offers incredible fishing – even from the beach – as well as idyllic beach swimming and nature walks.

Choose a camp site with superb ocean views. 

All of our 11 camp sites have ocean views, and are located on the beachfront. Our accommodation also includes an air-conditioned ensuite cabin and a low-powered tent site.

Please contact us to book your accommodation, or you may prefer to visit for the day. However long your stay, a blissful escape awaits.  

Pender Bay is located on the Dampier Peninsula, 190km north of Broome in Western Australia. With a 4-wheel drive, it’s easy. Enjoy the journey and the destination.

We recommend you allow at least two-and-a-half hours, and bring everything you might need for a wonderful, secluded holiday: food, drinks, toiletries, fishing and snorkelling gear, and a boat (if you have one). We have some resources for hire, but feel free to check with us first if you’re unsure.
