Abstract

This report is concerned with the natural and cultural resources of Cape Naturaliste peninsula, an oceanward projecting mass of land 225 kilometres south of Perth (Map 1). The region enjoys a slightly cooler summer than the Western Australian capital, and this, added to the beauty of its surrounds, has led to heavy pressure of recreational use at several commercialized locations. The peninsula itself, for the purpose of the present study, is defined as that area north of the stretch of Caves Road which connects Dunsborough and Yallingup, a total of some 6,880 hectares (17,000 acres) .
