The main attraction of Ledge Point is the coastline and the relaxed atmosphere. Windsurfing is popular and coastal winds are very regular here.
The Ledge Point to Lancelin Windsurfing Classic is held annually in January.
As with most of the part of the coast, lobster (crayfish) fishing is an important part of the local economy.
If you are planning to spend time here, be prepared to just sit back and relax. Swim a bit, walk along the beach, go fishing, take your boat and fish and
snorkel in the lagoon area. There is only the general store for supplies but if you need a 'shopping fix' the larger town of Lancelin
is only a short drive away.
There are 4x4 track leading north and south from town so if you want a bit of advanture you can have that too.
In 1937 the Government reserved land in the area as a camping reserve. By 1952 squatters had begun to move in to the area.
By 1953 a road to the coast had been constructed and the town site was gazetted in 1955.
In 1963 the wreck of the Vergulde Draeck (Gilt Dragon) was found by divers and artefacts recovered from the wreck are displayed at the
Geraldton and Fremantle maritime museums.
The name comes from a coastal feature and was given during a Royal Navy hydro graphic survey. It appeared on maps from 1875.
