Read more about William Bay National Park, one of the best places to visit in Western Australia.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW?
William Bay National Park is located 400 km south of Perth, and 20 km from Denmark in Western Australia. It’s worth to stop here on your way to Walpole – Nornalup National Park, or Albany, and Torndirrup National Park. Australia’s South West is quite civilised, so you don’t have to be stressed about finding standard accommodation. Camping in the national park is not allowed, but there are many campsites nearby. Visitor Centre is in Denmark, open from Tuesday to Saturday, between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.
WHAT ARE THE BEST THINGS TO DO?
There are two epic locations in William Bay National Park that you have to add to your itinerary. These are Elephant Rocks and Greens Pool. Both absolutely stunning! The best time to visit those places is definitely Australia’s summer. Mainly because they are great for chilling out, sunbathing and swimming in the ocean. The scenery is beautiful all year round though. If you have a 4WD vehicle, you can also go exploring off the beaten track. Check out West Cape Howe National Park that is not too far from William Bay National Park.
These are huge granite boulders that resemble elephants emerging from the sea. I personally can’t see the similarity, but this doesn’t really matter. What matters though is that Elephant Rocks are absolutely gorgeous. Just imagine, turquoise green waters, white sandy beaches, and rock formations of a different shape. You can spend here a couple of hours or even the entire day. I truly recommend staying a bit longer, and watching a sunset. Elephant Rocks are close to Greens Pool, so you can take a short stroll to get there.
Not too far from Elephant Rocks you can find another epic location which is Greens Pool. Water here has a very intensive turquoise colour, even more vivid in the rays of a setting sun. The beach nearby is also beautiful. Sandy, and white. Just have a look at the below photos. What else do you need for a relaxing day on the beach? Take your time to swim, snorkel, and fully enjoy this place. Just remember that camping in William Bay National Park is not permitted. So you need to find another place to stay overnight. Have fun!
