National Parks in WA – Denmark & William Bay National Park

The jewel in its crown is William Bay National Park which words don’t quite do justice to as its simply jaw droppingly beautiful. The centrepiece of the park is Greens Pool and Elephant Rocks where rounded granite boulders create a reef stretching a hundred metres out into the Southern Ocean.

Swimming by Elephant Rocks in Western Australia

Greens Pool

Be below away as you descend down into Greens Pool where a white sandy beach with huge granite boulders meets you.  The expansively white beach stretches west, endlessly out of sight, far past the rock guardians of the rock pool across William Bay to Mazzoletti Beach.

This is an ideal place to swim as it is sheltered by the many large boulders and many an adventurer has been seen jumping from the single square-topped boulder in the centre of the pool.  This is a place you will not want to leave and will day dream about when you are back at work after your holiday!

Elephant Rocks & Elephant Cove

Just down the road from Greens Pool you will find Elephant Rocks which as its name suggests looks like a herd of elephants paddling out to sea.  Another woah moment awaits you here as you take in the pristine surrounds and turquoise, calm and very inviting waters.

Elephant Cove is a bit of a hidden secret that not many people visit but our guides will take you too.  As you descend a staircase and make your way between two towering rocks onto the beach you’ll marvel at the huge cracked elephant-shaped rocks which make a stunning sight as they gaze out upon the Great Southern Ocean.
