Cape Le Grande National Park in the Southwest of Western Australia is one of the most beautiful sections of the W.A. coast line.

Cape Le Grande National Park is a beautiful place to visit and is just a 35 minute drive from Esperance. The coastline in this part of Western Australia is really spectacular and is a photographers paradise. What helps to make this a popular place to visit is the easy of access. Normal sedans can get into the park as all of the main roads are sealed so a 4 wheel drive vehicle is not necessary.

The rock formations, ocean, waves and sand can make up many a different and great photo. There is a great deal to be seen in the park, but this is a must see beach.

The sand here is so fine that it actually squeaks when you walk on it and it is white.

Lucky Bay

The white sand here is so fine and white it will actually squeak as you walk on it. Lucky Bay is renowned as being one of the best beaches in Australia. On the beach and also at Hellfire bay, Western Grey Kangaroos can often be seen laying down and relaxing. There is a caravan park right here on the beach and during the peak holiday seasons it can be very difficult to find a parking bay to use. So it is vital to book well in advance if you are planning to stay more than a day.

Thistle Cove

Thistle Cove is in between Hellfire Bay and Lucky Bay and is just as spectacular as the other two. There is a large rock that slopes down to the water and gives you a grand stand view of the cove. Walking either way from the car park will open up many different views for the photographers that come to visit. Whistling rock is a large slab of granite that causes a whistling sound when the wind comes from the right direction. There are no picnic facilities here but those at Hellfire Bay and Lucky bay are just a short drive away.
