Mouth of " The Cut"
Mar 2020
" The Cut" was dredged ( in thr 1950s) to drain the Leschenault Estuary - dolphins frequent "The Cut" hunting for fish & " Turkey Point" is a magnificent ( & beautiful) location to view the dolphins ( for free) &/or park & walk down to the beach for a swim or stroll. " Turkey Point" ( on the west side of " The Cut") is also a VERY good fishing location.

Lovely quiet beach area
Sep 2019
There's lots of coastline to explore in Bunbury, but this is one of my favourite spots, since it's out of the way and quiet.

Access is off Estuary Drive, and then you drive all the way to the very end of Leschenault Drive. There's a traffic light and office at the entrance to the port area, but public can access this.

At the very end, there's a gravel car park, and you can even drive right onto the beach if you have a 4WD. A couple of 4WDs were on the beach when we visited.

The beach at the end is right beside The Cut, which is the channel going into Leschenault Estuary, with the Leschenault Peninsula easily visible on the other side of The Cut. There's a fishing platform here, and we saw a few people fishing. There were also some dolphins cruising through the Cut. A natural boat ramp goes into the estuary. The only thing missing are some toilets.

We walked south-west all the way along the beach to the very end, although you can't access the port itself, but the beach does go to the channel where the ships go through in order to get to the port.

Since it's a bit out of the city, and requires going through the port entrance, this gem of a spot is only really frequented by locals, so it's not super busy. It's not the most amazing beach, but it's lovely to get out of the town, and enjoy nature and the beach away from the crowds. We really enjoyed our visit, and will be back!
