This relatively small (1867 hectares) park protects stunning coastline and forest between Walpole and Denmark on the south coast. It is renowned for its windswept granite rocks which have a striking primeval appearance.
Granite boulders and rocky shelves form much of the coastline between Greens Pool and Madfish Bay, extending 100 metres or more out to sea, and creating a reef which bears the brunt of heavy seas. Inside the reef, sheltered pools, channels and granite terraces create a fascinating seascape for beachcombing. However, visitors are strongly advised to take care when exploring outside of Greens Pool as there can be unpredictable surges on the coast, even when calm.
Both Greens Pool and Madfish Bay are suitable for swimming and there is a viewing platform at Greens Pool. Elephant Rocks and Waterfall Beach are good picnic areas but not suitable for swimming.
The park abounds in flora and fauna including magnificent Karri forest, Peppermint and coastal heath. There are approximately 100 species of birds and many species of marsupial including Pigmy Possum and Honey Possum.
Wildflowers are particularly spectacular from August to October. Fishing is popular at all coastal Parks and species caught include Australian Salmon, Mulloway, Whiting and Herring. Normal Fisheries regulations apply.
Camping is not permitted, however the Bibbulmun Track, the famous 1000 kilometre walk trail from Perth to Albany, offers walkers three-sided wooden shelters, water tanks, picnic tables, pit toilet and tent sites, with each campsite in the southern half spaced a day's walk apart.
The trail crosses Parry Inlet, traverses Mazzoletti Beach, and from the William Bay access road climbs two kilometres up Tower Hill to the Track's William Bay Campsite. Nestled in a sheltered valley on the hill summit, it is close to spectacular views and fascinating rock formations. The William Bay section of the trail is outlined in Maps Seven and Eight of the Bibbulmun Track series.
