Point D'Entrecasteaux

Western Australia has some of the most spectacular coastline in the world. Point D'Entrecasteaux is one example of this overwhelming natural beauty.

 

Point D'Entrecasteaux is one of the few places where the coastline of the D'Entrecasteaux National Park is accessible to 2WD. The area offers visitors a choice of interpretive walks and spectacular lookout points. Whales, pods of dolphins and shoals of salmon can regularly be seen from the lookout at Tookulup.

Reaching the coast of the D'Entrecasteaux National Park

The D'Entrecasteaux National Park stretches 130km along the coast between Augusta and Walpole.

 

This 116,686ha park has long white beaches, rugged limestone and basalt cliffs, vast coastal sand dunes backed by extensive wetlands and islands of Karri forest and granite.

There is a wide range of recreational opportunities that can be enjoyed including fishing, surfing, whale watching, four-wheel driving, camping, bush walking and canoeing.

 

Coastal ecosystems are fragile so be careful if you take your four-wheel drive into the park.

D'Entrecasteaux is a special place with many secrets to discover and enjoy.

Mt Chudalup

Mt Chudalup is a 187m high granite outcrop in the D'Entrecasteaux National Park, on the way to Windy Harbour from Northcliffe.

Mt Chudalup, known as a monadnock, rises abruptly from the surrounding sedge and heathlands. This massive block of granite is fringed by Karri and Marri forest. The summit offers magnificent 360 degree views of the surrounding D'Entrecastreaux National Park and the coast beyond.

This granite outcrop is home to 42 species of moss, 28 species of lichen and 6 species of liverwort. They are an integral part of the complex ecosystem that exists on this "granite island".
