Observatory Point and Lookout

Natural Attractions

Observatory Point and Lookout offer magnificent views across the coastline of Cape Le Grand National Park. Examine the memorial placed at the lookout commemorating the explorers who took shelter from the storm in 1792. Keep an eye out for the spectacular sight of whales that can often be seen swimming through the surrounding ocean between June and October.

Attractions in the park are plentiful. Take a stroll along numerous walk trails during wildflower season for a breathtaking display of nature’s beauty. Cast a reel into the ocean to catch fresh salmon for an evening feast. You may be rewarded with the unusual sight of kangaroos sunbathing on the pristine beaches. Also include a visit to the bird sanctuary which is home to numerous native birds.

Regarded as one of the most spectacular National Parks in Western Australia, Cape Le Grand is a 30-minute drive from Esperance and nine hours drive or one-and-a-half hours flying time from Perth.
