About this place
Canal Rocks is essentially an open air museum of the geological features and rocks of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste ridge, which you can experience while surrounded by the powerful forces of wind and water that have helped shape them.
Clamber carefully over the rocks to marvel at the ocean’s power and even walk across one of the canals on a narrow bridge.
The parking area, boat ramp and jetty provide the only facility in the area for the safe launching and retrieval of vessels for recreational users, tourism operators and Volunteer Marine Rescue.
The Aboriginal name for Canal Rocks is Winjee Sam.
Canal Rocks is located in a general use zone of the Ngari Capes Marine Park where fishing is permitted.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
Learn more about staying safe while fishing and, for more fishing information, go to Fisheries.
