08.12.2018 – Cape Le Grand National Park

Approx. 50.kms from Esperance, the magnificent Cape Le Grand National Park and we had the day to explore the Cape. Low level bush growth contrasted with the massive rock hills and at the bays, the whitest sand gave way to beautiful blues and turquoise blues of the ocean.

Our first stop was at Cape Le Grand Beach.  From there, a walking trail starts and connects to other parts of the Cape. As we have said before, we know it’s going to be a good place if we find a set of steps/stairs and here was no exception. We only went a short way up to be able to get a great view and declined the opportunity to continue the rest of the way on an all day 15.km hike – I didn’t come with enough water and I’m sticking to that excuse!

From the car parking area is access for 4WD vehicles to the beach and how could we resist taking Suzi for a drive there?

Nearby, an area set up for campers – make enquiries to book before you get there. There are good facilities with hot (limited) showers. Many sites are suitable for campervans but there are a couple large enough for big rigs. Each unpowered site is private, separated from others by some bush and in the photo below, the sites are within the bush above the car parking area.
