Wanamalu Trail, Cape Peron, Shark Bay
About the Trail
The drive to the northern tip of Francois Peron National Park goes through sections of very soft sand and requires a high clearance 4WD with low range capabiity. 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.
