Australian Marine Parks

Bremer Marine Park protects habitats ranging from shallow coastal waters to the deep ocean.

The park includes deep undersea canyons (in the Albany Canyons group) that funnel cool nutrient-rich waters upwards. This boosts marine life, which in turn provides food for marine mammals and seabirds.

Nature-watching tourism is increasingly popular here. Killer whales (orcas) and southern right whales are the stars of the show.

The Noongar people have responsibilities for sea country in the park.

The park is approximately half-way between Albany and Esperance, offshore from Fitzgerald River National Park. It covers 4472 square kilometres, with depths from 15 metres to 5000 metres.

It has National Park and Special Purpose (Mining Exclusion) zones.


Meet a killer whale or a southern right whale on a nature-watching cruise.


Killer whales (also known as orcas) are the largest members of the dolphin family, growing to over nine metres long and weighing up to 4000 kilograms.

These top-order marine predators sometimes work cooperatively to hunt. Their prey includes:

  • fish
  • squids
  • seabirds
  • marine mammals.
