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.

Beautiful spot for a swim and to just enjoy the scenery. A must visit if your into photography as the rocks and ocean can provide excellent background. Great protected boat ramp with concrete bottom and solid jetty. Plenty of parking available and public toilets.
Well worth a visit...

An awesome place to be visited during high wind pr wet weather so experience the roaring of the waves. Sunny day 😎 is good for photo & explore the rocks around....

Parking is good, views are stunning, gotta pick a day with no strong winds, the government has already repaired the walkways. The jetty is good for fishing and the whole area is good for aerial photos.

Easy to access walk straight off the car park to the board walk that takes you over the canal formation. Nice views can go exploring the rock pools at the end of the board walk if the ocean swell isn't to rough.
