About this place
A large cave near the summit is thought to have formed by wave action and underwater currents during a period some 40 million years ago when sea levels were at least 300m above their current level and the peaks of Cape Le Grand were largely submerged.
The Aboriginal name for the peak is Mandooboornup and it is an important place in local Aboriginal culture.
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!
