One can drive into the park with a suitable 4WD on once own, but I think it's better to book day trip with an operator and guide.The guides know a lot about plants and take you to interesting places.

A 4WD tour is a must. The scenery is spectacular and the viewing platforms provide excellent opportunity to view marine wildlife.

We went with an aboriginal guide... Capes. It was a high light of our WA tour. We went to places that are not accessible with a normal 4WD. An unforgettable experience and well worth the dollars we paid.

Worth visiting, heaps of marine and birdlife to see. Crystal clear and calm beaches. If you don't have a 4WD I recommend a tour.

Great day 4x4. It is a slow drive to the top but well worth the drive. You need to be prepared for a full day out with all your own supplies. The views and walks are spectacular the facilities are basic but well maintained. The...More

Took the family on a day trip from Denham. Met a friendly ranger who was more than willing to assist with any questions we had. I wanted to go land based fishing, so he suggested Bottle Bay. We lowered the tyre pressures in the 4wd...More
