WA Esperance National Parks

William Bay National Park

About 14km west of Denmark on South Coast Highway, turn left and proceed about 4km then turn right to the parking area. Unique scenery, rocks and reefs. Scenic spots include Greens Pool, Elephant Rocks, Tower Hill, Madfish Bay and Waterfall Beach.

Stirling Range National Park

Named after the first Governor of Western Australia, Captain James Stirling, the Park covers 115 671ha. There are many tracks providing easy access to wildlife and flowers. Alternately the western access via Tourist Drive No. 253 from Cranbrook takes travellers along the Salt River Road, Red Gum Springs Road and into the heart of the National Park. Picnic areas with barbecue facilities are located throughout the Park.

The ecology is delicately balanced and to ensure the flora and fauna are preserved, camping and fires are permitted only where facilities are provided. Five of the peaks rise to over 1000m and are often shrouded in mist. Some times in mid-winter a light fall of snow will cover them.

Porongorup National Park

The Porongorup Range has some of the oldest rock in the world and the National Park covers 2 401ha. Easy walking tracks lead to most of the peaks giving spectacular views.

Tree in the Rock, a remarkable natural phenomenon is found in the parking area at the beginning of the walks to peaks. An ideal spot for a barbecue or picnic

Torndirrup National Park

The Torndirrup National Park is on the coast south of Albany and Princess Royal Harbour and includes some of the most spectacular scenery in Australia.

The Gap is a 24m drop to the sea. When a heavy swell is running, the thunder of the ocean and the drifting spray are an awesome experience.

The Natural Bridge, a, huge.granite suspension, bridge like in shape, is an awe-inspiring sight in heavy swells. Visitors are advised to take care when viewing.

Frank Hann National Park

Located 150km north-east of Ravensthorpe. Represents a cross section of the heath flora of the inland sandplain.

Fitzgerald River National Park

Covering 349 000ha, this Park has mountains, gorges, plains and 100km of spectacular coastline. With its surrounding areas, it has been designated by UNESCO as an international biosphere reserve, one of only two in Western Australia. It is particularly famous for the number and variety of its wildflowers and for its rare animals.

Two mountains in the south east of the Park have good walking trails. East Mount Barrens has a clear rocky path marked by white-tipped stakes, making a spectacular ascent up to the west ridge. Further inland No Tree Hill makes a gentler climb with a well defined path.

Stokes National Park

Located 80km west of Esperance, this National Park encompasses 10 000ha surrounding Stokes Inlet and features long beaches and rocky headlands backed by sand dunes and low hills.

Cape Le Grand National Park Probably the most spectacular and beautiful area on the west coast. Only 56km by sealed road from Esperance. Its many superb bays with their snow white sand and brilliant blue water are breathtaking, particularly Hellfire Bay, Thistle Cove and Lucky Bay. The view across the bay and the National Park from Frenchmans Peak is fabulous.
Camping facilities and walk trails available.

Cape Arid National Park

Located 120km east of Esperance, it stretches over nearly 20 000ha of sandplains and heathlands, but is perhaps better known for its sweeping beaches, clear blue seas and Pre-Cambrian granite headlands.
