Cape Naturaliste

1267 Cape Naturaliste Road, Naturaliste, Western Australia, Australia

At the northern extreme of the Margaret River region, Cape Naturaliste is part of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park and is covered in thick coastal bush. From hiking trails and lookouts you can get dramatic views of the Indian Ocean to the west and the calmer Geographe Bay to the east. The Cape Naturaliste lighthouse is a popular tourist attraction (entry fee applies).

The cape has several hiking trails and lookouts. The trail from the lighthouse to Sugarloaf Rock, that is the trail heading south-west from the lighthouse, is paved and has some raised boardwalk sections and a lookout with seats. This wheelchair / disabled access friendly track is spectacular and highly recommended. At the top of the cape there are three other lookouts that are especially good for whale watching (Sept. to Nov.).

Shore fishing is popular at the north-east edge of the cape. Download the Margaret River Find the Fun App for maps showing hiking tracks, lookout points and some fishing spots.
