Eat & Drink Port Hedland

Introducing Rays: Your new favourite place to eat in Port Hedland

Whether you're craving some zesty fish tacos, a juicy rib-eye steak, or ice-cold beer with a view, our brand new restaurant and bar is ready to welcome you.

Ocean views, ice-cold drinks, and a good pub meal are hard to beat when you’re on holiday in Port Hedland – but at Rays at the Hedland Hotel, we’re taking things a step further with our brand new bar and restaurant.

Combining fresh WA produce with Southern Californian flavours in a retro-cool space, here’s a taster of what’s on the menu at Rays.

The new place to eat in Port Hedland actually has a long history

Rays takes up the old restaurant and bar space at The Hedland Hotel, overlooking Turtle Beach.

Newly renovated, it’s undergone a significant transformation in layout, food, and personality. Now, Rays is a place to soak up the sun and enjoy good company, food, and drinks from our beachside oasis.

The new fit-out also highlights The Hedland Hotel’s history. You’ll find nods to its original Palm Springs stylings, designed to create a space that feels airy, light, and laid back.

Not your usual Aussie pub

Much like the sun-drenched desert modernism of the space’s new look, the food and drink selection at Rays continues in the same theme.

Discover casual dining, with bold flavours: Southern-Californian-inspired dishes, from mouthwatering baja fish tacos to fresh Seafood Towers.

Rays is designed to be a spot where you can sit back, relax, and lounge the afternoon away. Enjoy long, lazy lunches with friends, from 12:00pm.

Relax on the desert-chic day beds. Sip a crisp, refreshing beer after a long day, as you gaze out over the bay.

Get together with friends in the evening over a decadent cocktail, or take the family out for a no-fuss meal on your Port Hedland holiday. Dinner service starts at 5:00pm, so it’s a place for everyone—at any time of day, too.

Open from 6:00am, seven days a week, you can start your day in style.

Sit down and tuck in to a leisurely breakfast from 6:00am–9:00am, featuring all your favourites with a distinct Rays twist.

And the best news? When you stay at the Hedland Hotel, you’re already on its doorstep. Book one of our Breakfast Packages as part of your stay, and you get a sumptuous Rays breakfast included in your stay.

Book, eat, and drink ‘til late
