Life is about the journey - some roads are not always what they seem but you sure learn a great deal from them!

Just shy of Cervantes is a turn off to an amazing beach called Kangaroo Point. There is no historical data on why this beach was called Kangaroo Point other than I noticed a number of Kangaroo tracks in the sand.

Found just off Indian Ocean Drive

This location is popular for shore fishing and boating. This coast line is also open to 4x4 wheel drives that use it as a means to travel from Cervantes to Lancelin.

The coastline itself has an abundance of seaweed which is the perfect habitat for bugs and bacteria. This also happens to be one of the main food sources for native fauna in the area.

Crystal Clear Water inviting you to have a little 'dip'.

The shore line, which is clear and translucent, would make a great place for paddling. I am not sure I would venture further out into the sea, however that is entirely my preference.

Just shy of the beach is a beautiful covered area that has a table and two BBQ's. I can imagine cooking freshly caught fish for a day end meal.

A complete WILD exerience

While Kangaroo point is fairly isolated, there is toilet facilities. Of course, there are absolutely no flushing system so be prepared for a 'long drop' experience.

The "Long Drop"

Apart from the isolation where you can enjoy time in the 'wild' without any other tourist in sight, one can observe a range of fauna and flora. If you plan to have an evening meal I would suggest a torch - for obvious reason.

You will find the turn off to Kangaroo Point off Indian Ocean Drive. It is well worth the visit, and something you can tick off as a place you visited!
