About this park

The park is a great place for a whole range of activities such as picnicking, camping, birdwatching, beach four-wheel driving, fishing, swimming and boating. Explore one of the trails and trail networks in the park for cycling and bushwalk.
Set up camp at the Belvidere Campground and The Cut Campground – which can only be accessed by boat, or by walking or cycling on the access track from Belvidere Campground.
While you’re there you may be lucky enough to see some of the animals that call this park home - bats, kangaroos, wallabies, possums, bandicoots.
Plan when to visit. Read this safety information about bushwalking, swimming, fishing and boating. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!

Our land, together. Kalgulup Regional Park protects our culture, plants and animals across Bibbulman lands from the coast to the rivers, hills and lands beyond for present and future generations to learn about, respect, care for and enjoy. These lands and waters, we now entrust to you, to pass on to those who follow.
Kalgulup is a Noongar word meaning ‘place of fire’ or ‘place of burning camp’. It is a place surrounding Quobba Keip Boya (‘a place of pretty rocks and water’), which sits within the lands of the Pinjarup, Wadandi, Kaneang and Wiilmen people. The significance of the name Kalgulup derives from fire and its elements (smoke, coals, ash) being at the koort (heart) of Noongar culture. The name Kalgulup is pronounced ‘Kaal-gool-up'.
