Cape Keraudren (Croyden) Coastal Reserve is located 179kms north of Port Hedland on the Great Northern Highway, and 13kms west via the Cape Keraudren Access Road.
This nature based reserve is a favourite for fishing, crabbing and those who just want to get away from it all. There is no electricity provided on the reserve however if it is a low-key, quiet and private getaway you are looking for then Cape Keraudren is the place for you.
The reserve comprises an area of approximately 4,800 hectares and was vested in the Shire of East Pilbara in 1985.
As the Cape Keraudren Coastal Reserve is a low-key recreational area, disturbance to the environment has been kept to a minimum.
The closest water supply is at Pardoo Roadhouse, 13kms east at the intersection of Cape Keraudren access road and the Great Northern Highway.
Cape Keraudren is a haven for marine, terrestrial and oceanic animals and although it can sustain a certain amount of recreational pressure impacts must be minimized.
