Northcliffe lies in the heart of the south west, only 366 kilometres from Perth and 20 minutes to Windy Harbour/Point D’Entrecasteaux and is about halfway between Margaret River and Albany – a great little place for a stopover.
Northcliffe enjoys an abundance of flora and fauna and is close to the extensive and unspoilt coast-line of the D’Entrecasteaux National Park. This is one of the few areas where pristine wilderness is so accessible.
Northcliffe offers visitors many sightseeing, leisure and recreational activities.
The Northcliffe community welcomes visitors as the region settles down once more after the large summer bushfire. Most of the attractions are open and we are looking forward to a spectacular wildflower display including orchids. A wildflower Festival from September to early November is a real possibility. Enquires regarding any of the attractions can be made to the Department of Parks & Wildlife 08 9776 1207.
