There's nowhere better to enjoy the South West's natural attractions than Northcliffe and nearby Windy Habour.
There is everything from a short stroll in Forest Park or along the cliff tops of Point D'Entrecastreaux to a six day trek in the wilderness section of the Bibbulmun Track. There are many walks catering for all levels of fitness and experience. Expect to see world famous flowers and fungi, magnificent trees, birds and native animals. You might even see whales, seals and dolphins, or you can even have a go at fishing for trout in the Warren River and along the coast at Salmon Beach.
Call in to the Northcliffe Visitor Centre and discover "Understory - art in nature". Understory is a unique art experience. Artworks are located along a 1.2 km trail through pristine, native forests. Explore sculptures, stories, poetry and music as you wander through the amazing setting.
