Far West Coast Marine Park

From $12

The Far West Coast Marine Park is an iconic site and is an important breeding and calving area for the southern right whale and Australian sea-lion. Stand atop towering cliffs adjacent to the park in the Yalata Indigenous Protected Area and witness the spectacle of these magnificent animals from the Head of the Bight viewing platform (fees apply). You'll see whales frolicking during their annual migration from May to October. During peak season in July and August there can be more than 100 whales in the area at once. Situated between the Western Australian border and the Tchalingaby Sandhills, the Far West Coast Marine Park's waters are also abundant with unique marine life, from Australian sea-lions to tropical species of basket star, sea cucumber and fish. You may even catch a glimpse of pregnant female school sharks that are known to gather in the area.
