Cape Naturaliste is a headland in the south western region of Western Australia at the western edge of the Geographe Bay. It is the northernmost point of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge which was named after the cape. Also the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse and the Cape to Cape hiking track were named after this location.
The nearest settlement is Bunker Bay - a community that evolved from holiday shacks to very expensive housing for wealthy residents. Further east, across the Bay, is Dunsborough - a much older settlement. Busselton is located still further east from there.
