The beautiful granite outcrop that makes up Canal Rocks is part of the rugged Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park known for its excellent fishing and scenic bushwalking.
A series of rocks jut into the ocean creating a natural canal hollowed out by the force of the sea. For the best and safest view, there’s a bridge built across the smallest canal.
The area is popular for fishing with salmon catches a big attraction around Easter time. There are some great bush walks in the area – the famous Cape to Cape walk passes by Canal Rocks with a route mapped from the car park to Wyadup. It’s a two hour round trip hike and you’ll be rewarded with stunning views over the Indian Ocean. You might even spot humpback or southern right whales migrating along the coast.
Canal Rocks is about a three hour drive south of Perth.
