West Australia Perth - Lesueur National Park

The Mount Lesueur area's strikingly eroded laterite landscape was once dismissed as worthless scrubland, useless to farmers and pastoralists. But it has long been a mecca for botanists, and is now protected in the 26,987-hectare Lesueur National Park.

The Lesueur National Park, east of Jurien Bay in the northern sandplains, has spectacular landforms underlain by complex geological features. Its exceptionally diverse flora of more than 820 species includes many plants found nowhere else in the world, and represents 10 per cent of the State's known flora. Five species are endangered and several more may warrant similar status.


250 km north of Perth. 3 hours from Perth. Access to the park is by 4WD only.
