Moderate track
Starting from the car park off Windy Harbour Road, Windy Harbour, this return walk takes you to the Mount Chudalup Lookout and back. At the end of the trail surrounded by sedges, on the enormous granite rising above the said karri trees, you can enjoy a 360-degree view of D'Entrecastreaux National Park, the coastal area and sand dunes that are formed by the continuous Southern Ocean winds. There is a picnic area and a bathroom stall. Unfortunately, no pets are allowed. You might want to be cautious about the edges of the cliff as well. 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.
