South Cave - ROCKY CAPE NATIONAL PARK

North West Coast


The western road into Rock Cape provides access to four very interesting and beautiful walks and drives.  After travelling 2 or 3 kilometres from the Rocky Cape Roadhouse a fork in the road is reached.  There is an information booth here.  There is a superb view off to the right and the road down to the shore beckons.  On reaching the car park a track heads off up to the left to South Cave - an ancient aboriginal shelter.  Just a 10 minute walk with superb coastal views of Table Cape and Sisters Beach to the east.  Back where the road forks a track leads back up the hill to Cathedral Rock.  The walk looks intimidating but is quite easy.  Three or four hours return.  More spectacular coastal views.

The road to the left takes you past Mary Ann Cove to the Rock Cape Lighthouse and the North Cave.  There are shacks at Mary Ann Cove as well as a well appointed picnic area.  A little further on there is a boat ramp.  An unmarked and elusive track leads to an interesting area on the park with views to Circular Head and Stanley to the west.  Five or 10 minutes walk on a flat tack.
 

   
       
 

Little Doone Falls.  Not the most attractive falls but a welcome shady retreat for lunch after an hour or two's walking.
