Edel Land National Park

National Parks Shark Bay


The landscape at Steep Point is in stark contrast with the red sand dune landscapes found on the neighbouring Peron Peninsula. Here limestone dominates, forming impressive 200 metre high cliffs or sweeping white sand dunes and secluded beaches. Rainfall is very low and the dry and windswept coast looks barren and foreboding but, somewhat surprisingly, harbours amazing plant and animal life. This is not to mention the prolific marine life of the adjacent seas which are a major drawcard for fishers and divers.

Access is via high clearance four wheel drive vehicles ONLY and national park permits apply. Take all the necessary safety equipment and please ensure you follow the regulations on your permit. You do need your own pressure pump as there is not one available in the park. There is also nowhere to purchase supplies so please remember to bring enough, fuel, food and water for the duration of your stay.

Entry fees apply.
