Cape Leeuwin National Park

This park covers the Cape which is the land's end of the South West and the junction of the Indian and Southern Oceans.The Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse was named after the famous Dutch ship Leeuwin which passed this point in 1622.

During the building of the lighthouse, a spring was tapped to provide fresh water for the workers. This system was used until 1928. Since then, deposits of carbonates have encased the wheel in stone.

Beedelup National Park

Beedelup Falls are situated off Vasse Highway. They are set in beautiful forest surroundings, and feature a short walk crossing Beedelup Brook on a footbridge built from a Karri log. The "Walk Through Karri" is also situated in the Beedelup National Park. This giant 400 year- old Karri with a 3m x 4m hole took 10 hours to cut by chain saw. You can stand in the hole with over 151 tonnes of tree above you.

Warren National Park

Some of the best accessible virgin Karri forest, and the biggest (89m) of the Karri trees, can be found here.
