Cape Le Grand National Park

Cape Le Grand National park is located just under an hour's drive from the coastal town of Esperance, and is an absolute must-do when visiting the area. The park stretches for ... of ancient rugged coastline, idyllic white beaches rolling heathlands. You'll find unbelievably picture-perfect beaches perfect for swimming, surfing, fishing and boating, and even kangaroo spotting. There aren't many places you'll see kangaroos sunbathing on a white sand beach, but Cape Le Grand is known for it. If you're here in the spring months (September to October), you will likely spot some incredible carpets of wildflowers along the roadsides and further into the bushland. Far more than just a pretty beach, the national park also offers over 20 kilometres of walking trails. For a moderate hike, head to the Frenchman's Peak trail in the morning to see the amazing morning sunlight shine across the park from the summit. Although steep, this 3km walk gaining 140 metres elevation rewards you with spectacular panoramic views over the park and the southern coastline, dotted with islands of the Recherche Archipelago. The top is also home to a cave-like structure that is thought to have formed by underwater activity around 40 million years ago, when the area would have been submerged in the waters of what is now known as the Great Australian Bight.
