More about the area
As well as boasting unspoilt coastal scenery, Waychinicup National Park, near Albany, is a vital area for threatened animal species. In places, deeply incised gullies run down to the sea from bare rock exposures and boulder-strewn hilltops.
Within these tree-filled gullies is a secret world of small streams, waterfalls and moss-covered boulders. Some rare and elusive animals have been isolated, yet protected, in these gullies by the fortunate combination of bare rock, moist gullies and almost impenetrable vegetation.
Waychinicup National Park covers the lower reaches and estuary of the Waychinicup River and the line of granite outcrops extending east to Cheyne Beach.
65km east of Albany - a drive of about 45 minutes. The entry road can be hazardous or closed after bad weather.
