Things to do
There's lots of things to do on and around Cheynes Beach. You might need to stay awhile...
If you are a serious birder, you will already know about birding at Cheynes Beach and Waychinicup National Park. We have the "Big 3 Skulkers" (Noisy Scrub-bird, Western Bristlebird and Western Whipbird), which can only be seen all together here at Cheynes Beach. We also have a number of other WA Endemics and all the birds are seen within a 2 minute walk of the Caravan Park. Cheynes Beach is a must see birding destination.
We can cater for tour groups.
Cheynes Beach is the premier location for land based Whale watching, with the whales coming right into the bay to calve and very close to the rocks. On a calm day you can hear the whales tail flapping and blowing from the Caravan Park! Humpback Whales, Southern Right Whales & even Blue Whales!!
Not only do we have Whales, but Dolphins call the area home and are regularly seen surfing the waves of Cheynes Beach.
Boat, Rock or Beach Fishing
Cheynes Beach is the premier location in the area for Salmon fishing as we have 2wd access. Other fish to be caught here are:
King George Whiting
