Australian Traveller Magazine’s 100 Great Australian Holiday Homes
Providing your own fish and chips to devour on the expansive sunlit decking is what it’s all about at Rockpool Beach House, about 360km north of Perth and just shy of Geraldton. And when you’re not landing a snapper or dhufish for supper, you’ll most likely be chasing blue manner crabs through the shallows or dropping lobster pots to your heart’s content. Positioned right on the beachfront, the four-bedroom family hideaway is also just a short stroll from Dongara/Port Denison’s main drag, Moreton Terrace, and its famous row of century-old Moreton Bay fig trees. This is a town built on the booming success of its rock lobster industry, and Rockpool Beach House has built a reputation among returning families as one of the better, more affordable properties in an absolutely superb location.
