Witness spectacular seascape views across the Indian Ocean and up and down the remote coastline at Canal Rocks. Thousands of years of the Indian Ocean surging and crashing against this section of granite coastline has chiselled out a narrow channel between the granite rocks. A narrow timber walkway allows for easy access and great views of the rushing ocean beneath. It is always impressive no matter what the weather, but breathtaking when the big storms and swells roll in. 

The timber pathway meanders around and across the rocks, taking in grand seascapes with swirling water to little pools and lagoons where you can look for marine creatures like cheeky crabs to brightly coloured starfish. For something more challenging there are areas to climb over rocks, or take an energetic stroll to the lookout about 500m from the road. For the more adventurous, snorkelling and fishing are popular activities in the sheltered areas but be sure to heed the directional and warning signs. A finger jetty and boat ramp add to the facilities offered. Canal Rocks is on the Cape to Cape Track and is a popular stop for walkers with the freshwater spring located 100m below the track, north of the carpark. Canal Rocks also offers a two kilometre scenic walk to Wyadup Cliffs.

What an stunning view. The rocks itself are crazy with their unique formation and appearance. The view from here is simply beautiful. Climbing the rocks are entertaining with the whole area being a nice place to swim. Must visit place whilst travelling nearby. Lithesh Manivelan

This is a gift from nature that one should not miss to drop by before heading toward Margaret river. Canal Rocks at Yallingup is a must-visit place. It is an awesome and unforgettable place to experience in Western Australia. Hear the splashing waves perpetually hitting on the rocks giving voices of mother nature. Cheers! Ernest Li

Very beautiful place where the waves splash up high of the rocks. But no soap in the toilets , that's totally unacceptable with covid ! Glen Morris
