Description

From Northcliffe to Windy Harbour. Starting at Northcliffe, this trek features great coastal scenery with a taste of tall karri forest. The roads and tracks mainly vary from well formed gravel to soft sand over which tyres must be deflated to 20 psi, and if travelling on the Gardner River dunes, to at least as low as 14psi.

Maps show the key Chesapeake Road as being closed at the (upper) Gardner River crossing but a 4WD ford has been opened adjacent which is not well publicised.

Windy harbour is a charming hamlet with fabulous coastal outlooks from the drive around Point D'Entrecasteaux National Park. Also not to be missed is the short 30 minute walk with interpretive details up Mount Chudalup halfway between Windy and Northcliffe.
