Summary

A short and easy 400 metre loop walk to see some interesting limestone cliffs along Cockburn Sound in the Beeliar Regional Park.

The Beeliar Regional Park consists of two chains of wetlands comprised of 26 lakes and numerous wetlands stretching 25km along the coast and covering an area of approximately 3400 hectares. The Henderson cliffs are contained within the western section of the park.  These cliffs are composed of Tamala limestone, which has formed from wind blown dunes where sedimentation has occurred and water has percolated through forming carbonate underneath. The footpath is sealed and therefore wheelchair accessible from the Car Park for 100 metres to the lookout. There is an alternative foot track (non-accessible ) which winds from the lookout north and back to the Car Park for 200metres. There is a path which crosses Cockburn Road and meets up (after one kilometre) with the Mt Brown Car Park.
