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.

Scenic spot for a walk along the rocks, and a beautiful place to watch the sunset from! Make sure you grab some baked goods from Busselton or Dunsborough on your way down for afternoon tea! Brendan Mulcahy

Very under rated! Great place to have a walk on the huge rocks. The rocks are fascinating to look at. One of my favourite places visited along WA south west coast. Donna Jayde

Location: It's about 40min driving from Busselton Jetty. Windy and you can feel the water splashing to your face. There is a small bridge to cross in the other side. Be careful because the wet rock is slippery. The view is outstanding! The journey to get here is really worth it! Entrance Fee: It's free and open to public. Parking is free but limited. Rock Media

It's a great place to view the ocean and appreciate the power and beauty of the water. Watching the waves break over the rocks and then surge under your feet as you stand on the bridge is mesmerizing. If you're fit you can climb up to the top and fill your lungs with fresh salty air coming straight off the Indian Ocean. Love this place! Heather Upton

What a gorgeous rocky beach. Awesome to wave watch, look for small sea life, hop rocks safely for all ages. Go look for shells past the boat ramp. Marcel Van der Horst Photographer
