Named after the Norwegian barque Mandalay, wrecked there in 1911, Mandalaly Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the Walpole area. Mandalay Beach is a great stop en route between Manjimup and Walpole. Worth a visit purely for the stunning beach scenery, the lucky visitor may be fortunate enough to glimpse the wreck of the Mandalay, which can still be seen poking out of the rough waters of the Southern Ocean when the tides are low. Mandalay is popular with anglers, but even if you do not fish, its worth the visit for the spectacular views of the Southern Ocean and of Chatham Island, which looms out of the water 3 kilometres offshore.

Mandalay beach takes its name from the Norwegian barque Mandalay wrecked there in 1911.

On-site interpretation and extracts from the Captains Log tell you more about the wreck of the Mandalay.



Turn onto Mandalay Beach Road, 12 km west of Walpole.

One of the most beautiful beaches in the world
I can't imagine a more perfect beach. Acres of white sand, beautiful clear turquoise water, waves cascading with power and potential... and no people! The car park is nearby and there are toilet facilities. Just don't expect a café or donkey rides!

A hidden Gem
After the corrugated road, you are met with the most spectacular view. It is worth it, the view takes your breath away.

Photographic Delight
Although our visit was during a drizzling cool windy day we could appreciate the vista would be ten times better on a warm sunny day. Still, photos turned out great and the giant waves that crashed over the western end of Chatham Island were spectacular.
