As an example of WA's wild and isolated coastal splendour it is hard to beat.
This section offers two whale watching lookouts before traversing a beach section. The track then climbs steeply to Conspicuous Cliffs for spectacular views over the Southern Ocean then descends through coastal heath. Keep an eye open for tiny wrens and other small birds en route to Rame Head camp site.
