West Cape Howe National Park

West Cape Howe NP
Western Australia's southern most point. Hang glide from the Shelley Beach platforms or admire the view to the point. Visit West Cape Howe National Park by heading east out of Denmark along the South Coast Hwy, and turn right at the Lower Denmark Road. You will find a turning on your right heading to Shelley Beach and West Cape Howe National Park. Look on the map BEFORE you head out there so you get your bearings.

We'd suggest the view from the Hang Gliding platforms above Shelley Beach for the best view of WA's southernmost point. You can see the cape in the distance. It is possible to walk part of the way along the Bibbulmun Track from the platform carpark. If you're visiting West Cape Howe National Park, Shelley Beach and the Lookout are worth the visit.
