Lower Glenelg National Park

Discovery Bay Coastal Park

map.gif (4067 Byte) The Glenelg River and surrounding bushland are the features of Lower Glenelg; Discovery Bay's attractions are lakes, dune areas and a long, sandy ocean coastline.

The most spectacular feature of Lower Glenelg NP is the gorge of Glenelg River. For 15 kilometres along its lower reaches, the river has cut a gorge, in places more than 50 metres deep, in Miocene limestone. A visit to the Princess Margaret Rose Caves, noted for their beautiful and delicate limestone formations, is recommended.
