Cape Le Grande national Park

Today we drove out to Cape Le Grande National Park 35 miles east of Esperance. It’s one of the smaller parks that we’ve visited but very, very beautiful. It’s characterised by some wild coastal scenery, rugged granite peaks and superb bushland but the best part is undoubtedley it’s white sandy bays. First we visited Cape Le Grande Beach and then drove on to Lucky bay where there is a very nice bush campsite with more facilities than normal i.e solar shower and good toilets. We stopped there for the night and had a couple of hours good walk round the stunning bay. Later we were joined by another couple from the UK. They have also bought a small camper and are well into a 7 month tour around Australia. We sat and talked in the dark (lights attract too many flying things) and were joined for a short time by a kangaroo with a joey in it’s pouch.

There is no daylight saving in WA so strangely it’s light at 5a.m. but dark by 6.30p.m. so everywhere people seem to eat their evening meal and have a few drinks early and it’s lights out by 9.30. It’s surprising how quickly you get into the routine.

As we said, the beaches here are advertised as the best in the world but even if they’re not they must be very close.
