West Cape Howe on the bucket list of things to do

By David Bomba

Are you planning a trip to Australia? Well, put Western Australia & West Cape Howe at the top of your list. You don’t have to take my word for it but these are just some of the things people have said on trip advisor who have done the tour:

“West Cape Howe national park was nothing short of amazing”

 “Awesome experience, a must-do”

 “The rugged terrain, cliff drops and crashing ocean are worth the trip. Dave’s expert navigation, 4-wheel driving ability and amazing knowledge of the area made for a superb day. The scenery along the cliffs of West Cape Howe is, as the tour says “Out of Sight” and according to Dave, looks different every day depending on the time and the weather. We learned so much about the geology, history, flora and fauna of this fascinating part of Australia which few people can get to experience unless they are expert 4-wheel drivers.”

 “Having exchanged e-mails with David of Out Of Sight Tours, I booked a full day tour to the West Cape Howe National Park (WCHNP) for my touring party of 4 with ages ranging from 57 to 80 plus. For those who love the out doors ( and not the shopping malls), this is one not to be missed. There are many attractions at WCHNP, just check with David. The destination for us was the dolerite cliffs. Lying on one’s stomach and crawling to the edge of the cliff, the view of the Dolerite cliffs takes a different perspective. 80 meters below is the frothing sea caused by strong waves beating against the foot of the cliff, straight ahead is the Southern Ocean and above the clear blue sky. Stay a while, let go of every thought and enjoy the moment… is magic! Remember to bring your camera, wear walking shoes and bring some warm clothes in case the weather changes. But remember not to leave any rubbish behind and not to take anything from the National Park. Leave it in pristine condition for others to enjoy.”

Where to stay: Albany or Denmark
