Cape le Grand’s Victoria Harbour. Pic:

The magnificent Cape le Grand National Park is a bucketlist touring destination. Truly one of the Wild West’s touring icons.

The picturesque national park is just 40 minutes out of the southern township of Esperance, and 770km east southeast of Perth.

This strip of coastline is famed for its pure white sand and electric Koolaid coloured water. This is as good as it gets, when it comes to beachside holiday getaways.

You’ll feel a million miles from anything approaching civilization, but Esperance has got you covered for fuel, food and supplies.


4WDING: The sand fringing Lucky Bay is bone white, hard packed and easy to drive on. You’re unlikely to get stuck out here, but can’t hurt to have the MAXTRAX on hand, just in case.

FISHING: While the fishing can be good out here, there’s a lot of water to cover. Keep an eye out for the slightly deeper gutters when presenting baits from the sand. Smallish Aussie salmon are a good bet from these waters just about year round.


LOCATION: 770km east of Perth and 50km southeast of Esperance.

CAMPING is available at the Le Grand and Lucky Bay beach campgrounds. Park entry fees of $11 per vehicle per day apply, as well as additional camping fees.

FUEL is available in Esperance.
