Sea cliffs, coast and karri West Cape Howe National Park lies on the southern coast between Albany and Denmark. Its coastline is dominated by rocky headlands, sheer cliffs and sandy beaches. Inland, the park rises to the north, coastal heaths giving way to jarrah and sheoak and to tall karri forest near the park entrance. The park is not large, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in scenic grandeur. TAKE CARE ON THE COAST The southern coastline has a notorious record for accidents and deaths due to people slipping or being washed into the ocean by unexpected waves, gusting winds or extra large swells. Please exercise extreme caution and don't risk being the next victim. Stay well back from cliff edges. If you are going fishing you are advised to wear a Personal Flotation Device or life vest. Rock fishing is extremely dangerous on this coastline and is not recommended.
