What to do in Esperance, WA

Recommended Posts

We have never been to Esperance, Western Australia before.

 

I was wondering would you recommend doing here for the day??

 

If you have been to Esperance before, what did you do there for the day??

 

Also does the cruise ships dock near the city? or do we dock a long way from it?

 

Any ideas / suggestions are very welcome 🙂

Would highly recommend an excursion to Cape Le Grand National Park. Absolutely beautiful.

It was a ship tour, but we were sailing on Regent, where tours are included in the fare. It would probably be possible to find a company that does that excursion (we also visited the rebuilt Stonehenge, quite interesting).

Last January we took a shuttle bus from the dock to the city waterfront.  A tent was set up with tourist information.  The nearby local museum was interesting, and we walked around for a while.  In the afternoon we took a Holland America ship's tour to Twilight Beach, which was lovely.

Agee Cape La Grand National Park is a must.  Depending how long you are in port, I'd hire a car.  

 

What time of the year will you be visiting?  Wildflower season is spectacular.  

 

When we camped there, there were kangaroos on the beach.  

 

It is one of Australia's special places!
