West Cape Howe NP, WA



West Cape Howe National Park contains the most southern point in Western Australia, Torbay Head. Almost completely covered in heathland and forest and bearing the force of the Great Southern Ocean, this National Park is worth the visit.

Located south-west of Albany, West Cape Howe houses the famous Shelley Beach, and Shelley Beach Lookout where platforms are built into the side of the hilltop for hang gliders and paragliders to launch. You can drive to West Cape Howe from Albany or Denmark in under thirty minutes. It is a slightly longer drive from Denmark in the west.

View the rugged end of the state at Forsyth Bluff, or visit Cosy Corner just outside the National Park for a stroll along the white sandy beaches.

If you intend to walk to Torbay Head, the southern-most point, it is a 15km round trip hike on undulating terrain with little shelter. The beginning of the walk is part of the Bibbulmun Track. Visit the West Cape Howe Map to get your bearings.
