About this park
Edel Land is proposed for National Park status. Best known for Steep Point, it’s the most westerly part of the Australian mainland. Come and explore massive sand dunes, secluded beaches and windswept limestone cliffs.
The towering Zuytdorp Cliffs rise up 200m from the Indian Ocean. It’s a sight to see. This has been listed as an exceptional feature in the Shark Bay World Heritage listing.
You’ll need a four-wheel drive to explore Edel Land. The terrain is rugged in this wildly beautiful landscape. Navigate the rocky and sandy tracks to see fabulous views of the dominating coastline. You’ll be blown away by the blowholes and other natural attractions.
Go camping at a Shelter Bay, Steep Point or False Entrance (fees apply).
Review - SPECTACULAR! FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE ONLY!!! Beyond paradise, the beaches, blow holes and standing at the most westerly point on the Australian mainland is special. Jayne J - Trip Advisor
Plan when to visit. Read this safety information about swimming, fishing and snorkelling. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued, it could save your life!
- The park is remote and its hazardous coastline has large surf, 200m high cliffs, blowholes and dangerous marine animals.
- Notify a reliable person of your trip plans so you can be traced in an emergency.
- Be prepared for the heat. Take at least 10 litres of water for each person per day.
- Exercise extreme caution near cliff edges especially when fishing. Supervise children at all times. Go to Recfishwest for important information about rock fishing.
