Coffin Bay National Park
Well known for its birdlife and remote coastal scenery, Coffin Bay National Park is an ideal place for a recreational adventure.
The park conserves a representative sample of diverse coastal landscapes ranging from high windswept cliffs and massive dunes to pounding surf beaches and sheltered sandy bays. Visit during late winter and spring and you’re likely to see the park ablaze with native flora.
There are plenty of opportunities to explore the park. At the southern end of the park, Yangie Bay which is accessible by 2WD offers an ideal place to paddle your canoe, enjoy a bush picnic or explore a coastal bushwalking trail. A sealed road to Point Avoid takes in spectacular island views. The bays and coastline around the park are also great for boating, sailing, scuba diving and windsurfing.
The stunning northern beaches of Coffin Bay National Park are only accessible by high-clearance 4WD. A favourite destination for anglers, birdwatchers and surfers, this remote and beautiful area offers several secluded camping areas with easy beach access.
