Description

Home to over 900 plant species, this is one of the most magnificent reserves for flora conservation within Western Australia. The National Park erupts into colour seasonally, during late Winter and Spring each year. The natural beauty is not limited to the flora, with many species of native birds and reptiles also calling the national park home.  

There is a selection of walking trails in and around Lesueur National Park, but visitors can also drive to the top of Mount Lesueur to experience a breathtaking panoramic view of the park and the expansive coastline. There are no camping or water facilities in the park and entry fees do apply, however, there are many camping facilities in the towns which surround the park.
