About Bluff Point Heritage Trail
The Bluff Point Heritage Trail takes you on a journey through the historical significance of this area. Learn about its importance to local Aboriginal people as a fishing and midden site. Take in stories about "the Bluff Light" with a stop which includes the Bluff Point Lighthouse Keepers Museum. Bluff Point also once served as the junction of the old Geraldton to Northampton and Walkaway railways, as well as a strategic location during World War II. Impressive views across Champion Bay can be enjoyed, along with a family friendly picnic site at St George's Beach. A nearby cycle/walk path takes you along the Beresford Foreshore to further park and other facilities.
