Things to do in Esperance

  • The Esperance Tanker Jetty hosts a range of food vendors.
  • Hike the Frenchman Peak trail in Cape Le Grand National Park for stunning views. Frenchman is one of three granite peaks. Caves and tunnels found in the peaks are thought to have formed by wave action 40 million years ago. The Aboriginal name for the peak was Mandooboornup.
    It’s a 3 km trek to the summit and back. Allow 2 hours.
  • Lucky Bay is a must see. It's a protected bay with white sand and clear water great for swimming and you'll meet the friendly resident kangaroos. There is also a camping ground here. (see below)
  • From July to November the wildflowers are in bloom. You can enjoy them on the driving trails and walks throughout the Cape Le Grand National Park. Drop in to the Visitor Centre on the Esplanade to grab a map.
  • Esperance Museum gives you a glimpse into the history of Esperance. Admission $8 adults.
  • Rotary Lookout is the place for views. There are also a loop trail from here that will take you down to Lovers Cove. Other good lookouts include Observatory Point and Eleven Mile Lagoon.
  • Beaches with white sand and turquoise waters abound in Esperance. Good ones include Firsties Beach, West Beach, Blue Haven Beach, Lovers Cove, Salmon Beach and Twilight Cove.
  • Drop in to Lucky Bay Brewing to sample some craft beer.
  • Esperance Stonehenge is a life-sized replica of the original stone henge in the UK as it would have looked 5000 years ago when it was first built. Its stones align with the summer and winter solstices in Esperance. ADMISSION: $10/adult

We did not include the pink lake because it is no longer pink, and people going there expecting it to be pink are disappointed. It is still a pretty lake in our opinion. Keep reading for great camping options.
