Tadpole Cove Walk – Cape Gantheaume Conservation Park

National Parks and Reserves

This walk combines unusual coastal scenery with early settlement heritage sites. The walk starts at an old grain threshing floor, used by early settlers to process locally grown grain, and takes you past the ruins of a small cottage dating from the same period. The walk then meanders through regenerating vegetation to a lookout above Tadpole Cove, which is named after an unusual rock formation in the centre of the cove. Watch for ospreys soaring along the cliff edge as they hunt for fish in the calm waters of the cove.

The walk begins in the car park adjacent to the threshing floor just south of Wreckers Beach, D’Estrees Bay Road.
