“I Was Amazed at How Friendly They Were”

I had heard about the stingrays at Hamelin Bay so we added Hamelin Bay as a place to camp.

I was amazed at how friendly they were.  Every sunset we would walk down to the beach where 5 to 10 huge bull rays would basically beach themselves right at your feet.

The local fisherman threw their scraps into the water so they hung out waiting for a free feed.  However, of all the afternoons we were there we didn’t see them getting fed once yet they still turned up at sunset to cruise the beach. Watching my kids give them a little pat was pretty special. Set in a beautiful bay, it became the highlight of each afternoon watching my kids play on the beach with the stingrays as the sun set.
