Two Peoples Bay

Two Peoples Bay

Two Peoples Bay Nature Reserve
in the Albany Region of the Rainbow Coast

Western Australia.

The bay itself, including two small secluded beaches, faces due east and is protected from the Southern Ocean by a headland formed by the granite massif of Mount Gardiner.

 

Two Peoples Bay

 

The name “Two Peoples Bay” is from an incident in 1803 when an American whaling ship used the sheltered waters to lay anchor at the same time as a French vessel that was exploring the coastline east of Albany.
