An absolute must see to experience the natural beauty, particularly Lucky Bay. Make sure you have a refreshment at the beach cafe while watching the docile kangaroos grazing or resting on the beach oblivious to the people around. Access is good for normal vehicles and you don't have to trek far to get to the good spots. Make sure you... More

We visited Cape Le grand last week. Our eyes could not believe what they were seeing. The most beautiful beaches we have seen. One one of the beaches of 2 km long, there were 2 other swimmers! Talk about peacefulness! Breathtaking, amazing, extraordinary, the words are missing to express our feelings for this park. The landscape of the park is... More

Beautiful location and stunning scenery. Definitely one if the most appealing pieces of Australian coastline I have seen. I threw a lure off the rocks at one spot for 10 minutes or so and landed a Sargent Baker but no salmon. As with most of the popular national parks I've visited around Australia I found the entry fee exorbitant. Its... More

Well worth the drive out, if you are staying near Esperance. From the scenic drive in, of the landscape, the big boulders to the turquoise waters and white, white sand. I wish we had more time, to do some of the walks. I liked Hellfire Bay the best, and Thistle cove. However Lucky Bay was just as stunning. Would definitely... More

Lucy bay was beautiful but there were more people on the beach than the others plus the 4x4. Thistle cove n hellfire were our favorite as they are quiet no cars n the rocks around make it less windy. Thistle cove does not have a path to the beach so we took our time going over the rock but once... More

Lucky bay is a MUST see. First impression was jaw dropping and a definite WOW! LOTS of tourists, not hard to see why. We saw Kangaroo's before 10am and after 4pm only. Don't forget sunglasses that sand is blinding!

Amazing, well maintained park. Definitely one of the best ever. We enjoyed the beaches, but did not have time to do some of the walks. Will come back for that.

It was pretty hot when we drove into the NP, 43C but once we hit Lucky Bay, it was like we have stepped into heaven. The beautiful, crystal clear water, the lovely soft white sand so fine that every step you take it squeaks was real fun. Then when you plunge into the water it was like an ice bucket... More

Loved this part of the coast for years. Still as beautiful and unspoilt as ever. Lucky Bay is perfection, water glorious colour and so clear. Can't go wrong at any of the other beaches either. Lucky bay now has a small very well run and friendly kiosk, on the beach, for coffee, snacks, ice cream etc which was very welcome... More

This is a must see national park. Superb white sand beaches, clear blue water, a pristine natural environment. Great bush walks and beach walks and wonderful swimming. Nice picnic facilities, toilets and parking. Take a picnic as there is no food or drink on sale within the park. Highly recommended
