Two Peoples Bay and Little Beach
35km east of Albany the Two People's Bay Nature Reserve is home to the maginficent stetch of beach known as Two Peoples Bay and the spectacular Little Beach - a real favourite with the locals.
The finest white sand and the bluest of blue sea meet to create an idyllic secluded spot you mustn't miss when visiting Albany.
The nature reserve itself is perhaps most important for being home to the critically endangered Gilbert’s potoroo and the endangered noisy scrub-bird, both of which were presumed extinct until being rediscovered at Two Peoples Bay.
There is an excellent visitor centre at Two Peoples Bay which has lots of information about local history, wildlife and important recovery programs for threatened species. Over summer months, the centre is usually open from 10am to 4pm. During other months the centre is open when staff are present, however when closed the colourful displays can still be viewed from outside. A picnic area and gas barbecues are nearby. No camping and no drinking water available in the reserve.
One of the best ways to enjoy the scenic beauty and wildlife of Two Peoples bay is to walk along the Heritage Trail. The walk starts at the rear of the visitor centre and winds through peppermint woodland then loops back along the beach (Distance 4.6km, allow 2 hours return, Class 4 Moderately difficult). Stand or sit quietly on the trail and you may hear the territorial song of a male noisy scrub-bird, especially during their mating season (May to September). Lookouts on the trail provide views across the sheltered bay. A 5km return spur from this loop leads to picturesque Little Beach. Allow 4 hours. Class 3 Moderately easy.
