Gardner Beach (WA 565) is located on the western side of the Gardner River mouth and when the mouth is closed it links to beach WA 564. The beach is usually about 250 m long and faces southeast across the river mouth shoals. It is tied at its western end to a low granite rock, with some ridges of granite also outcropping at the mouth, hence the name Granite Bar. The small shack settlement of Walbingup, is located on the western banks of the river, just inside the mouth. The beach is moderately protected by the rocks and shoals with waves averaging 1-1.5 m breaking across an attached bar. However be careful, as when the river is open, strong tidal currents flow along the beach. It is backed by a vegetated deflation area, then an active blowout, with a vehicle track through the blowout to the beach.
