A whale watching platform is situated at Point Ann in the Fitzgerald National Park which is the perfect spot for catching a glimpse of the whales.

Situated 3kms south of Bremer Bay is the original settlement in the region. Built in 1850 of local stone and burnt lime, the museum includes viewing of homestead outbuildings, artefacts and antiques. Guided tours are available. When your viewing is done, relax with lunch or coffee at the Cafe.
The Old Telegraph Station
Bremer Bay came into existence when it was chosen as one of the Telegraph Station sites of the Overland Telegraph. The first Station was built in 1875 and opened for telegraphic traffic on the 8th May 1876. The original building burnt down and was replaced with the existing stone structure in 1896. In recent years this has been renovated and is now being used as a Café/restaurant.
