Cape Naturaliste is the northernmost point of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge. 

You can explore the Cape Naturaliste coastal scenery by taking short walks along the boardwalks and lookouts, which include the Cape to Cape Track that runs between the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse and Sugarloaf Rock. This is a world-class, levelled and bituminised trail that hikers of all abilities can tackle (including wheelchairs) and it includes 1 kilometre of timber boardwalk. The view will take your breath away and is an incredible vantage point to spot whales between September to December.
