Where Is Injidup Beach?
Injidup Beach is one of the closer beaches to the Margaret River townsite, and the beginning of the track is only about ten minutes north of Margaret River. It is also only one of two beaches that you can drive on near Margaret River, the other being Boranup Beach.
How To Get To Injidup Beach?
From Margaret River, head north on the Bussel Highway, and turn left up Carters Road. When you get to the T-junction, take the right up Caves Road, until you get to Wyadup Brook Road, where you would turn left.
Follow it nearly to the end, and before it veers off to the right, take your left onto Cape Clairault Road, and follow this road to the very end where you will find Injidup carpark, and a public toilet. From here, take the wooden steps down to the beach.
What To Do In Injidup Beach?
Injidup Beach Camping
Are you wondering can you camp at Injidup Beach? Unfortunately, the answer is no, however you are close enough to Boranup, Contos, Jarrahdene and Point Road Campgrounds, further south of Margaret River if you don’t mind making a bit of a trek.
Injidup Beach 4WD Track
Unfortunately, you cannot drive on the beach at Injidup.
Also, here’s a list of Margaret River 4WD Tracks if you want to learn about some other tracks you can try out.
Injidup Beach Fishing
You can fish off the beach here, we’ve definitely tried a few times, with plenty of good Herring, Tailor and Skippy biting regularly. You can even target Mulloway in the deeper channels. This is also a great beach for catching Salmon during the annual Salmon run.
Be aware that Injidup Beach is on the eastern edge of the Injidup Sanctuary Zone which means you are not allowed to fish from a boat in this zone, although you are allowed to fish off the beach.

Injidup Beach Surfing
There are three surf breaks at Injidup Beach that you can surf;
- Peabreak - This reef break is located 50m north of the carpark at the very end of Cape Clairault. It produces hollow waves and is best at low tide, just watch out for the reef bottom.
- Injidup Carpark - This spot is also at the same carpark as Peabreak. It works best on a 3m swell and can get extremely crowded when the swell is big.
- Injidup Point - Park at the Injidup carpark, head to your left at the bottom of the stairs, head over a bit of rock and then back onto a bit of beach, walking for about twenty minutes in total. This is a reef with a few shallow sections, so its best to make sure the tide is high. This is a good spot to go as it requires a bit of effort to walk to. Most surfers will stay at Carpark or Peabreak so they don’t have to walk, so this can be a very quiet place for a surf.

Injidup Beach Swimming
Are you wondering can you swim at Injidup Beach? You definitely can swim at Injidup Beach, however I would recommend that only strong swimmers swim here, as there are rips and a strong undertow here.
I would not let my children swim here, as they are quite young, however they enjoy splashing in the waves.
Also, be aware that it is an unpatrolled and remote stretch of beach, so you are a long way from help if something bad happens.
Is Injidup Beach Dog-Friendly?
No, Injidup Beach is not dog-friendly as you would have to take your dog through Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park to get there, and dogs are not allowed in national parks.
You are allowed to drive along Caves Road with a dog in your car, even though it falls within Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, as long as you don’t stop inside the park boundaries.
Park Rangers will fine you if you are caught, so don’t even bother trying.
Here’s a list of all the Dog-Friendly Beaches In Margaret River where you can take your dog instead.
