Information

North Head is a speccy limestone headland reachable by a reasonable 4WD track (no trailers). It offers superb views south to Jurien and is home to the Bartle memorial. Bob Bartle was killed by a tiger shark while spearfishing in 1967.

You used to be able to drive practically to the head itself, and to a delightful little sheltered bay on the north side; however, irresponsible 4WD’ing has led to a massive dune blow-out (see GoogleEarth image pic) and the only way to get out there now is via ‘shanks’ pony’ from a parking area to the east of the sand. On your way to North Head (to the blow-out) you will pass a couple of WWII concrete bunkers.

On calm days North Head is a great snorkelling spot.
