William Bay National Park is located 15km south-west of Denmark in Western Australia’s Great Southern Region. Its 10km span of coastline is easy explored in a day and makes a pleasant day trip particularly during the warmer months. This park is known for its rocky granite boulders hugging the coast, crystal clear pools and beautiful beaches.
Greens Pool is a calm bay area sheltered by granite boulders and reef and the scenery is stunning here. This popular family beach is a great swimming area with many protected pools and channels. The offshore rocks are perfect for snorkelling and exploring. Toilet facilities are provided in the main car park here.
A short walk from Greens Pool provides magnificent coastal views and leads to Elephant Rocks, which is a congregation of large granite boulders forming still pools and a small secluded beach. Sit or stand atop the highest boulder and take it all in. The picture is perfect and a clear day offers fabulous photo opportunities.
Madfish Bay is another beautiful protected beach and a great spot for families to enjoy. Further down the beach there is plenty of room on the rocks for the keen anglers to drop in a line and try their luck.
Waterfall Beach, as the name suggests, has fresh water spilling from the sand dunes and running into the ocean. This unique beach is a popular fishing spot and quite scenic too.
William Bay’s points of interest are accessible via unsealed roads and the walks are short and easy. No camping is permitted within the national park however there is a camp ground with facilities at Parry Beach located 27km west of Denmark along Parry Rd and there are also plenty of caravan parks in the Denmark town site.
