Most parts of the park are accessible by road so we've done the tour and checked out beautiful Hellfire Bay, Thistle Cove with its haunting Whistling Rock and Lucky Bay, the other campground which has a lovely sweeping beach and where we found kangaroos grazing in the seaweed.
In the walking department, we scaled Frenchman Peak very early in the morning before any other hikers
We walked the Thistle Cove- lucky Bay track, not quite as challenging , but very enjoyable and lovely scenery featuring many rocks that reminded me of standing stones.
Ivars walked the challenging track across rocky slopes from Le Grand Beach to Hellfire Bay and was lucky to spot and photograph the pretty dragon. I enjoyed a sleep-in
We've driven 21 k along the beach to Wylie Bay which is only about 10k from Esperance - so close we just HAD to go in and find a coffee. Back to the park by road was about 30 km longer.
A final evening stroll along windy Le Grand Beach saw the end to our time at this beautiful park.
