ⓘ Cape Mentelle

Cape Mentelle is a limestone headland on the Indian Ocean coast of south-Western Australia. It is within the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, just north of the mouth of the Margaret River and 9 km west of the town of Margaret River. It lies on the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, halfway between Cape Naturaliste 50 km to the north, and Cape Leeuwin 50 km to the south, on the route of the Cape to Cape walking track.

                                     

1. History

The cape was named on 4 February 1803 by French navigator Nicolas Baudin, on his expedition to Australia, after Edme Mentelle 1730-1815, a French geographer, historian and cartographer. It has given its name to a well known Margaret River winery, Cape Mentelle Vineyards.
