Esperance

Home of Australia's best beaches

semi-overcast 25 °C

Esperance is a beach and nature-lover's dream and is blessed with squeaky-clean beaches, turquoise waters, untouched islands and a pink lake. The town itself was named after a French ship, the Espérance, commanded by Bruni d'Entrecasteaux (Bruny Island in Tasmania is named after him) who visited here in 1792.

We own a piece of land on West Beach and used the opportunity to camp on it for a few days. We had to get permission from the local council to do so and the neighbours didn't seem to mind that we were there. Twilight Beach is just around the corner and it was voted best beach in Australia in 2006. Further along the Great Ocean Drive is Blue Haven, Nine Mile Beach and Ten Mile Lagoon, all stunning beaches with huge Southern Ocean waves breaking onto the shore.

From Esperance we will travel east to Cape Le Grand National Park to camp at the famous Lucky Bay.
