Migrating whales can be spotted around the Cape Naturaliste region for about 6 months of each year.
They pass this way around April on their way to warmer northern waters to meet and greet and again in October on their way down to Antarctica where they feed in the plankton rich waters.
There are charter boats available or for you landlubbers there is a viewing platform a short walk from Naturaliste Lighthouse.
If you have the time and the inclination you can walk from Cape Naturaliste in the north to Cape Leeuwin in the south.
It passes through some of the most rugged coastal scenery and magical pockets of karri forest to be found anywhere.
The Cape to Cape Walk Track is not just for experienced walkers. It offers a range of spectacular short walks suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. The entire Cape to Cape Walk Track is about 140 kilometres long and there is no charge to walk it.
The Department of Conservation and Land Management (CALM) have a sectional brochure with suggested short walk options.
These maps can be purchased for AU$8 from CALM Offices.
