Conspicuous Cliff

Conspicuous Beach Walpole

Overview

One of the most spectacular ocean viewing points along the South Coast of Western Australia.

Description

This is one of only three places around Walpole that offer car access to the coast. (The others are Peaceful Bay townsite and Mandalay Beach.)

Take your time and appreciate the fabulous coastal heathland featuring swamp paperbark and, in summer, red flowering gum (Corymbia ficifolia). This tree is endemic to this region, between the Frankland River and Denmark, with a few populations east of Albany, although it is grown as a popular feature tree around the world.

Arrive in winter and spring to witness the antics of whales, which annually cavort off this area. Seabirds and other marine life are found all year round.
