Hamelin Bay’s graceful Stingrays

These graceful rays are a regular on the shore line in Hamelin Bay. Three types of stingrays inhabit the waters – the smooth stingray, black stingray and eagle ray.

They are well fed by fishermen who throw their filleting waste back into the water.

As usual the seagulls are never too far away from the action.

We nervously had the opportunity to feed and pat the stingrays and feel their amazing velvety-like skin.

The larger stingrays have a 2 metre span.

And the bay is such a lovely area as well.


What a great thing to experience – and right on our doorstep.
