Welcome to paradise
Gandon Gully is a privately owned residence superbly located looking over Short Beach, 10km from the Bremer Bay townsite. Set amongst some of the most untouched and beautiful coastlines in WA, this affordable sanctuary provides an ideal retreat for those looking to really escape. The beach is a couple of minutes walk away and views from the shack are some of the best on the whole penisula.
Approximately 6.5 hrs drive directly southeast from Perth, with an early start you’ll arrive by mid-afternoon. Driving at night is not recommended because of kangaroos. Short beach is 10km southeast of Bremer Bay, a town of 1000. The town offers fuel, food, alcohol, internet and a nursing post. The house sits amongst peppermint groves facing northwest, sheltered from winds. Most of Short beach is sheltered by reef, providing a safe, calm swimming and snorkelling spot. Surfing is also possible. The water temperature is always refreshing, an excellent morning wake-up!
