Located between Skipjack Point and Cape Peron in Francois Peron National Park this 3.6km return walk offers excellent views of the area’s abundant marine life from the cliff top. Striking red sand cliffs provide great photographic opportunities.
The drive to the northern tip of Francois Peron National Park goes through sections of very soft sand and requires a 4WD. Cape Peron with its vivid red dunes, white beaches combined with blues seas and blue skies make a great end point. To really appreciate the raw natural beauty of this special place, there is a short walk through dunes to a couple of lookouts. In spring, wildflowers paint the dunes in colour and the air is full of Birdsong. If the wind is not whipping up whitecaps, you have a great chance of seeing a passing parade of marine life. The whole terrestrial and maritime combination makes a breathtaking sight, well worth the effort of getting there.
