Cape Range National Park
Cape Range National Park information
The rugged 510-sq-km Cape Range National Park comprises a third of the North West Cape peninsula and is rich in wildlife, including the rare black-flanked rock wallaby, five different types of bat and over 200 species of birds. Spectacular deep canyons and eroded red limestone gorges cut dramatically into the range, before emptying out onto the arid coastal dunes and turquoise waters of Ningaloo Reef.
The main park access is via Yardie Creek Rd. Several areas in the east are accessible from unsealed roads off Minilya–Exmouth Rd, south of the town. At present there is no public through-route across the range. Milyering visitor centre has a comprehensive display of the area's natural and cultural history, and great maps and publications.
