National parks are thriving with unique flora and fauna, much of it found nowhere else in the world. Northcliffe itself is surrounded by karri, marri and jarrah forest and is close to three of the region’s national parks; Warren, D’Entrecastreaux and Shannon.

Right in the heart of Northcliffe, ‘Understory‘ is an art trail that provides an opportunity to view world class outdoor sculptures scattered through an attractive, 1.2 kilometre bush trail. A range of audio tours explain the pieces of art.

Energetic visitors will enjoy the 187 metre climb up the granite outcrop that forms nearby Mount Chudalup; a granite monolith in the popular D’Entrecasteaux National Park, with outstanding views of forests and coastline. The massive block of granite is surrounded by a sea of karri and marri forest.

Northcliffe is in the Southern Forests and Valleys.
