Steep Point – Western most point of Australia 

So we have conquered the northern most point of the Australian mainland (Cape York, Qld), the eastern most (Cape Byron lighthouse, NSW) and now the western most (Steep Point, WA)!

Only the southern point (Wilsons Promontory, Vic) to go now!

When we first planned to go to Western Australia we had our list of must see places and Steep Point was one of them. So you could imagine our disappointment when a few months ago we sent through our camping permits for Shelter Bay, only for the ranger to contact us and say that the campgrounds are closed as there will be roadworks all throughout August and we wouldn’t be able to reach Steep Point!

Ocean Park Aquarium said that although the roads may be closed, they have other tracks they can use and could get permission to still run their tours. So we put our names down and left our contact details and asked if they could contact us if any more people were interested (they needed a minimum of three people to run the tour).

Steep Point is the most westerly point of mainland Australia and it is situated in the proposed Edel Land National Park, WA. It can only be reached by high clearance 4WD or boat.

At the end of the day, the main thing is WE MADE IT!
