The Nagula (Blue - to the ocean) trail offers the walker an interesting insight into a healthy vegetated dune habitat. Birds are common in the area, including the beautiful red-winged parrot. There are a myriad of interesting animal tracks that make patterns in the dunes, mostly lizards, snakes and ghost crabs. The trail is a good place to see the spectacular bird flower, which really looks like what its name suggests.

There is good directional signage to follow. The trail goes through soft sandy bits as well as some hilly dunes. Due to its isolation, this part of Cable Beach is unpatrolled by lifesavers. Swimming should only be between the flags at the main part of the beach.  

Minyirr Park offers a touch of local culture, you can learn of the unique role the sea and river systems of the Kimberley have played in the life of the local indigenous communities on a guided cultural walk and excursion through Minyirr Park, a natural coastal area covering both land and sea.

Other trails in the park are:

  • Lurujarri (Green - through the dune system) Look for the Irrigil (boomerang) trail marker. Approximately 3 hours from Cable Beach to Gantheaume Point 
  • Minyirr (Pindan - through the bush) Look for the footprints of the Marala (emu man) trail marker. Approximately 2 hours walking from end to end
