Two Peoples Bay is located east of Albany on the south coast of Western Australia.

Acess to the southern end is via Two Peoples Bay Road from Albany and access to the northern end is via South Coast Highway and Homestead Road.

At the southern end of the bay is a day use area and visitor information centre. There are also toilets, BBQs and a picnic area. A 4.6 km walk starts at the visitor centre and is listed as moderately difficult.

The Sinker Reef Track is a 4x4 accessible drive track that takes you to Sinker Reef Beach.

The northern end is a popular camping area with sites available at East Bay, Betty's Beach and Norman's Inlet.

The bay is just one of many spectacular locations near Albany and the reserve along the coast is home tio a number of threatened species including the nosy scrub bird and Gilbert's potoroo.

The nature reserve that is vital to the protection of these endangered species was declared in 1967. Unfortunately fire is no respecter of the reserve and in 2015, a huge bushfire destroyed an estimated 90% of the potoroo's habitat.

Almost 190 different bird species are known to inhabit the bay area including petels, shearwaters and penguins. 28 mammal species have been recorded in the reserve and in offshore waters there are three species of dolphin, southern right whales, New Zealand fur seals and Australia sea lions.

Over 600 plant species and 441 species of fungi are also found in the area.

The name of the bay originates from the meeting of an American whaling ship and a French vessel in 1803. The original name would have been better translates and the Bay of Two Peoples.

Due to the sensitive nature of the reserve, pets are no permitted.
