D’Entrecasteaux National Park combines pristine beaches and tall forests in a spectacular landscape along the southern coastline. Bush-walk through dense forest and coastal tracks, or four wheel drive through sand dunes. Be warned – the dunes in this area move with the weather so be sure to take a map and compass with you!
Beach fishing is first rate, or try one of the several river and inlet systems throughout the park.
In spring, you’ll be rewarded with beautiful wildflowers.
Camping facilities are at Yeagarup Lake, Yeagarup Beach, Carey Brook, Crystal Springs and Walpole’s western beaches. Or, take advantage of the camp set-up services on offer in the area. Book ahead and you can arrive to find your camp set up for you – tent, bedding and barbecue included with an optional canvas ensuite. Contact the visitor centre for more information.
The Park is a 4.5 hour drive south of Perth and can be accessed from Pemberton, Northcliffe or Windy Harbour.
Windy Harbour, Salmon Beach, and Broke Inlet are the only coastal areas which are accessible by conventional vehicle.
