What a beautiful area! Wintery weather couldn't spoil the view or beauty of the place. The beach looking out at Mutton Bird Island is a gem, will be back here in summer for sure.

Take first the look from above to the Shelly Beach! Breathtakeing! The beach is as well smooth! Maybe, stay for more than just a couple of eyeblinks.. Try also nearby Cosy Beach, just around the corner.

Another stunning Western Australia beach set among the boulders. The clear green water is amazing. Don't miss a visit if you are in the area.

We were fortunate enough to camp in the Shelley Beach campground, apart of the West Cape Howe National Park over Easter. The scenery of the whole National Park is nothing short of stunning, a favoured spot of campers, hand gliders and fisherman, plus beach goers....More

Stunning scenery wherever you look in this area. The coast line is beautiful, good for bird watching and sighting of native wildlife. Wildflowers in abundance. One of the best areas in our state of WA.

West Cape Howe National Park is about a half hour drive from Albany, and is a beautiful national park. With a two wheel drive, you are limited in what you can see. You can only access Shelley Beach, which is at the end of a...More
