West Cape Howe – great to visit in summer

West Cape Howe National Park between Albany and Denmark abounds in scenic grandeur.

Rocky headlands, cliffs and white sandy beaches offer spectacular viewing along this dramatic coastline touching the great Southern Ocean. Further north and inland coastal heath gives way to forested areas of karri, jarrah and sheoak.

Beautiful Shelley Beach with its lookout is the most visited attraction as the only area in the park accessible to two-wheel drive vehicles.  The sandy nature of many of the tracks means much of the park is accessible only to four-wheel drives.

West Cape Howe National Park contains the most southern point in Western Australia, Torbay Head. The park has a diverse and fascinating array of flora and fauna and has many facilities for bushwalkers.

Well worth a visit.
