Hike the Yangie Bay Trail in Coffin Bay National Park

Yangie Bay Carpark - Search Nearby - Added by Katie Kessel

A stunning walk along Yangie Bay with several opportunities to see lookouts of the bay and surrounding areas. The area is also teeming with wildlife, such as emus and kangaroos! 

This hike is short, but there are tons of opportunities to take in beautiful views of the bay and we saw tons of kangaroos! It was close to dusk, so this is a time when they're typically quite active.

The car park is past the campsite towards the bay itself. On the drive in, please note there are park entry fees (there was a box where you fill out the fee and deposit $10 in cash, but sometime in 2017 you will be able to do this online). Please be careful on the drive in as the park has lots of emus, goannas and other wildlife that hang out by the road! We saw quite a few emus on the way in. 

From the car park, head down the track along the water, looking for arrows pointing you up the hill. You will be following signs for the Yangie Bay Hike, indicated in green. There are a few other beautiful hikes in the area you can take, as indicated on the map at the trailhead, if you have time.

Follow the trail, which is well-marked along the loop, taking in the many lookouts along the way. The only junction you will encounter is about halfway through, where you must go left (unless taking on one of the longer hikes in the area). 

Keep a lookout for the kangaroos near the water, as this is where we saw all of them!
