The McGowan Government has recently announced the completion of the first two stages of the William Bay National Park renewal project and reopening of the park to the public.

Greens Pool and Elephant Rocks are much loved icons in Western Australia – near Albany. You can camp at Parry Beach or caravan parks in Denmark.

In 2019, the State Government invested $4.4 million over two years to renew ageing visitor infrastructure in the park and to protect the fragile coastal vegetation.

The visitor experience is now better than ever with the completion of newly sealed roads and car parks, toilet blocks, picnic tables, bicycle racks, and signage.

The new design has allowed provision for more than 200 parking bays, more than doubling the parking capacity in the park, including 182 standard car bays, a number of disability parking bays, 10 long vehicle bays, 15 motorcycle and two coach bays in the Greens Pool and Elephant Rocks areas.

The park’s diverse landscapes and turquoise waters attract more than 300,000 visits each year with this number expected to increase as a direct result of these upgrades.

Safer roads, improved parking facilities and improved pedestrian pathways will cater to the high visitor numbers at William Bay National Park, helping to drive tourism in the Great Southern region.

This exciting project has been delivered by the Parks and Wildlife Service at the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, and its contractors, in consultation with traditional owners, the Great Southern Development Commission and the Denmark Shire.

The next stage of the renewal project is now underway and will include upgrading access paths to beaches and design and construction of new lookouts and installation of interpretative signage.
