Cape Arid National Park
With off-grid seclusion, the whitest sands and bluest waters, Western Australia’s Cape Arid National Park makes our list of favourite places along this stunning coastline.

For the adventurous, Cape Arid National Park is the gateway to the breathtaking Bilbunya Dunes and beyond to a clifftop trip across the Great Australian Bight, you’ll likely never forget.
