Esperance, Western Australia

Esperance is a large town in the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia, located on the Southern Ocean coastline approximately 720 kilometres (450 mi) east-southeast of the state capital, Perth. It is a picturesque coastal of rugged beauty and stunning beaches.

The combination of stone islands offshore (the Archipelago of the Recherche), kaleidoscope blue waters and snow-white beaches is perhaps unrivalled on earth. The water is a turquoise blue near shore in late summer, gradually developing into deep, dark navy blues.

The superb Cape Le Grand national park just outside of town is a must-see. It contains many beautiful beaches and a natural, unspoilt wilderness. New Orleans bay is further along, and further still are Cape Arid and the Great Australian Bight.
