Beach

Yeagarup beach (WA 583) commences at the Warren River mouth and continues straight to the northwest for 18.4 km to the beginning of a 1.5 km section of calcarenite bluffs, just south of the Donnelly River mouth. This is one of the longer, continuous high energy beaches in the state. Wave remains high and up to 30 large rips dominate the inner bar, some with large rip embayments (Fig. 2.8a). The deflation basin narrows to 500 m and continue north for 7 km before it is replaced by active dunes. The backing Yeagarup Dunes consists of a 0.5-2 km wide active zone, then largely vegetated dunes extending 10 m inland, with one large central active zone covering about 1800 ha. The dunes average 100 m in height rising to 163 m. Two access tracks wind through the dunes to the coast, with a few fishing shacks located in the dunes and a solitary shack on the coast 8 km west of the river mouth.
