Lesueur National Park is best to visit in late winter to spring (August - November) when the rich variety of wild flowers are blooming. It's one of Australia's key flora conservation reserves. To enjoy the park, you can choose to do the 18 km (one way) scenic loop and stop along the way to take photos or, better, combine it... More

We decided to go and see the wild flowers in the national park but found it a bit disappointing as we have seen so many fields of colourful wild flowers on our travels that we were expecting the same thing here, instead there is a 18 klm loop road and you don't get to see them the same way. It's... More

We took the short drive out to this National Park from Jurien Bay. Some of the drive is on dirt roads, but they are very good quality easily sit on 100km/hr on the dirt. The actual drive through the park is limited to 40km/hr on wood bitumen. I didn't have any preconceived ideas and boy, was I surprised at the... More

A beautiful scenic drive on Tarmac road that drives past Mt. Lesueur. There are stopping points to see the wonderful wildflower and the colourful birds.

Three hours north of Perth is the beautiful Lesueur National Park and the best time to see the wildflowers is now (August $ September). If you drive by this area at 110kms, you will see no more than the blur of bush, the odd glimpse of the turquoise coast and the famous in land sand dunes. However, if you slow... More

Lesueur National Park has a terrific scenic drive, accessed from CockleShell Gully Road. Cockleshell Gully Road is unsealed, but easily navigable by 2WD. Once you're on the one way scenic drive, there are a number of bays to stop and observe the scenery. The Cockleshell Gully Picnic Area has picnic tables and toilet facilities. Ideally, it would be good to... More

I love this place & so glad it has been preserved & protected for us to enjoy. When you get to Mt Lesueur, there is a paved path to the right, or a lengthy climb to the left - take the one which suits you, but enjoy the scenery, Birds & flowers & maybe some other critters like lizards. Drive... More

Even in winter, Lesueur National Park is covered in flowers as far as the eye can see. There are bush trails including a 2 km walk up Mt Lesueur and picnic areas. Beware if you lie down to photograph the flowers as you may find that a tick has adopted you; it happened to me.

We visited at the beginning of June and were happily surprised to find so many wildflowers in bloom. I can imagine it would be amazing during peek flowering season. The park is well maintained and there are many mini signs identifying plant types as you walk through the bush. We did the hike to the top of Mount Lesueur and... More

Off the beaten track, along a paved road, you will find a spectacular array of wildflowers following informative signs to guide you through this nature haven. If you've got time take a loop walk up the mountain. If you're lucky you'll spot kangaroos and parrots maybe even an echidna too. A great introduction to Aussie bush without having to go... More
