About this place
Waterfall Beach is named after the small waterfall that tumbles onto the white sandy beach within William Bay. This beach is not as sheltered as others in the park, but it is still a great place to explore and especially, to go fishing.
If you look carefully east of Waterfall Beach towards Mount Hallowell you may be able to spot a monkey - Monkey Rock! Angle your head to the left, engage your creative brain and the monkey’s face may become clear!
William Bay National Park is very popular in peak periods such as school and public holidays, and there are limited parking spaces. Visiting the park outside of these times may provide you with a more enjoyable experience. Camping is not permitted in William Bay National Park.
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!
