Northcliffe, in the South West of Western Australia (map), has a population of around 770 (census data). The town is the gateway to the extensive and unspoilt coastline of D’Entrecasteaux National Park and enjoys magnificent Karri, Marri and Jarrah forest on its doorstep (environment).
The active lifestyles of our residents can make Northcliffe a busy place on some days. Northcliffe residents support numerous community groups and projects and are passionate about local issues.
Contributing to the lively atmosphere are daily TransWA bus services, the regular flow of Bibbulmun Track walkers, Munda Biddi bike riders, fishermen and 4 wheel drivers travelling toward Windy Harbour, campers, sight-seeing tourists, visitors to Understory Art & Nature Trail, orchid and wildflower spotters, and the farmers, delivery trucks, logging vehicles and others servicing our local industries.
