Bremer Bay is a coastal town situated on the south coast of Western Australia in the Great Southern region between Albany and Esperance, at the mouth of the Bremer River. Bremer Bay is 515km southeast of the state capital, Perth, and 180km east of Albany. The town has a population of about 240. Electricity is generated by a wind-diesel hybrid system.Bremer Bay is known for its beautiful beaches; the main beach is only 10 minutes walk from town. A marina at Fishery Beach offers full boating facilities. The Bremer Commonwealth Marine Reserve lies offshore.The bay was named by John Septimus Roe, who visited the area in 1831, after Sir James Bremer, Captain of HMS Tamar.The area was originally settled in the 1850s with the first homestead, the Wellstead homestead being built in 1857 and the first telegraph station being built in 1875. A second telegraph station was built of stone in 1896 to replace the first one.The town was originally named Wellstead, but the local petition in 1951 was in favour of the current name. The change of name was approved and the new name gazetted in 1962.
