More information

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.
