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.

Worth the drive to visit this place. Has a little bridge where it connects so you can climb on the rocks. Awesome place. Makes you feel so small against the vast ocean. Spectacular sights!!

Amazing place to see if you are down south near Dunsborough! Very clear waters and there are plenty of people who bring their boats swimming gear. Definitely recommend even for a quick stop by! 😍

Lovely place to visit. Crabs spotted around. Fishing is optional. Enough free parking. ❤️

Amazing spot. Highly recommend a trip out here to see the ocean flow into the bay.
