West Australia Carnarvon - Francois Peron National Park

Tthe Francois Peron National Park covers some 52,500 hectares at the northern extreme of the Peron Peninsula. This area has become one of the most important natural areas in Australia and is home to many rare and endangered species. The park is in the midst of the Shark Bay World Heritage Area and is adjacent to the Shark Bay Marine Park.

The park was once a pastoral station, and you can reach the old homestead by two-wheel-drive (entry fees are payable) to experience what life would have been like on a remote sheep station. Beyond the homestead is a wilderness area.


Francois Peron National Park lies 10 kilometres from Denham, 340 kilometres from Carnarvon and 410 kilometres from Geraldton.
