Innes National Park

At the tip of the peninsula lies the Innes National Park, with its contrasting coastline of rough cliffs, beach and sand dunes, and its interior of mallee scrub. The park is untouched except for the ruins of the gypsum-mining town of Inneston, near Stenhouse Bay. The main camping area is at Pondalowie Bay, which has some of the best surf in the state; there are several other good surfing spots around the park and north towards Corny Point. Other more sheltered coves and bays are good for snorkelling, with shallow reef areas of colourful marine life, while on land you might see emus, western grey kangaroos, pygmy possums and mallee fowl.
