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 coastline views and wildflowers in the spring. Some of the track signs had faded or had fallen over. Found this frustrating as a tourist who didn’t know the area, could be a risk for people getting lost and taking the wrong track. Make sure you take a photo of the big map sign before starting. Worth the trip.

A great place to view the Indian Ocean over rugged rocky terrain. Have fun climbing over the rocks to watch the waves. The water can be quite rough here depending on the weather. It’s beautiful and unique, reminding one of Scotland. There are wineries and chocolate tastings nearby within driving distance. Well worth a stop as your main destination.
