Coppin's Gap is a natural bucket list attraction located at Marble Bar, just 2 hours drive from Port Hedland in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

Coppin's Gap provides visitors with a safe and picturesque swimming location shaded by tall native trees and framed by a spectacular rock face. Enjoy a relaxing swim in the still waters and soak up the natural scenic beauty and tranquillity. Explore the rock face of the grove with its colourful bands of rock before settling down for a well deserved picnic lunch.

Located a half hour drive north of Marble Bar, which is known to be the hottest town in Australia, the shady water hole is a great spot for a refreshing swim. The pool is shaded by the rock throughout much of the day. A four wheel drive is recommended to explore the area. Alternatively make a stop at the Marble Bar or Port Hedland visitors centre for details about overland tours of Coppin's Gap and other attractions in the area.
