This area has one of the most scenic campsites anywhere on the south coast. Located 30 kilometres west of Albany it is only suitable for camper trailers and campervans and space is very limited. Caravans and big rigs cannot get down the road along the cliffs.

Special hang gliding platforms at the top of the cliffs make this a very popular spot for those who enjoy the sport. The beach is a popular spot for fishing and it is certainly one of the most picturesque places on the south coast.

Shelley beach is the only easily accessible coastline in the park. Dunsky Beach and Torbay Head are accessible to high clearance 4x4 vehicles. Torbay Head is the most southerly part of the mainland in Western Australia.

The park encompasses coastal heath, jarrah, sheoak and tall karri forest.

The steep cliffs and breaking surf can be dangerous, so stay well back from cliff edges and be aware of ocean swells if you go rock fishing.

Some people think that they might find shells on Shelley Beach but if you note the extra 'e' in the name, it is named after a person, not shells. The beach is in fact a beautiful stretch of sand.
