Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park

Forests, Reserves and Scenic Spots

Overview

Surrounded by the Indian Ocean, the boundless beauty and diversity of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park envelops the western edge of Your Margaret River Region.

More information

The national park takes in amazing views of the stunning Indian Ocean complete with tidal pools, lagoons, sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and rock formations.

Wildlife is abundant with chance sightings of dolphins surfing beach breaks and humpback and southern right whales can often be seen around June to December. Rare and common sea and terrestrial birds are best seen at Sugarloaf Rock and Cape Leeuwin.

Kangaroos, quendas, possums, reptiles and more are found all through the park. Wildflowers are prolific in spring including many species of orchid.

The beautiful Boranup karri forest is found in the south of the park just before Hamelin Bay and offers great scenic drives, bushwalking, camping and picnic spots.

Short walks in the Leeuwin Naturaliste National Park offer some of the most exhilarating adventures and are easy with boardwalks, sealed paths or limestone tracks. Or for something to really experience the natural wonders of this national park, take a hike on the 135km (five day) Cape to Cape Track which follows the coast from Cape Naturaliste, Dunsborough to Cape Leeuwin, Augusta.

Beautiful area with different trails to hike around. The "Wale Lookout" path will allow you to observe many wales and dolphins after half an hour walk, just be patient and pay attention to detail :)

Came around the region to look at the migrating whales on the coast. From the Lighthouse we went to Eagle Bay and then down the road to Point Piquet. Meelup beach was the next stop then to Castle Rock beach and back onto the highway. We managed to find some whale at Castle Rock beach. Nice scenic drive along the coast. Definitely a good place for lots of pit stops to enjoy the views.

Great walks and views over the Indian Ocean :-) Expect at least an hour round trip from car park near lighthouse to ocean views and back
