Starting from the end of Rocky Cape Road, Rocky Cape National Park, this walk takes you to Rocky Cape Lighthouse and North Cave. Enjoy a short and easy walk that winds through coastal heathlands towards North Cave, which was once an Aboriginal shelter. Visitors are not allowed to enter, but a nearby viewing platform offers excellent views of the cave and the bay, with interpretive signage explaining the history of the area. You can also walk down to Cave Bay, which is a good spot for picnicking, swimming and fishing. After returning to the car park, you can continue to the lighthouse for spectacular views towards Stanley and Table Cape. Some sections of trail may be overgrown, so long sleeves and pants are recommended to avoid getting scratched. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
