Cook’s Point Launch Area

Cook’s Point, located within the Karragarup Nature Reserve and the Kalgulup Regional Park, is a reserve on the Leschenault Estuary. Within the reserve is a small launch area for kayaks and kite surfers.

A limestone car park is located nearby. There are no other facilities at this site.

Kite Surfing

For kite surfers, the preferred launch area is located at the Ridley Place Foreshore, in front of the northern car park. However, there is a smaller launch area located at Cook’s Point with a timber and concrete tether pole.

The beach is narrow, so this is only suitable for one surfer or small groups.


The small launch area provides the perfect, and closest at 1.4 kilometres, access for kayakers wishing to paddle to the Belvidere Day Use Site.

Wildlife Considerations

The Leschenault Estuary is part of the Kalgulup Regional Park and is a major wildlife sanctuary.

Three flocks (bevys) of Black Swans live within the Estuary. Water users are encouraged to avoid the very northern section of the Estuary plus immediately south of the Australind Jetty where swans breed.

The Estuary is also home to a pod of dolphins.

Please follow marine safety regulations.
