Anyone travelling up the West Australian coast from Perth to Shark Bay, Coral Bay, Exmouth or anywhere in the Gascoyne will have prepared themselves for a long drive.

We see the tired faces arriving at reception, visibly relieved to be out of the car for a while.

But after they’ve had a chance to put their bags down and head over to the bar for a cool drink, we see the weariness melt away as they find somewhere comfortable to sit, watching the kids run off and find something to do, either jumping into the pool, heading off to the playground or plugging in to the free wifi, or just listening to the birds and watching the sun go down.

Visitors to the Carnarvon Motel often tell us that they wish they’d allowed more time to spend with us on their trip.
