Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fabulous National Park to spend a morning admiring the views and the stunning wildflower displays. We have enjoyed visits to various Parks in WA but to me, the diversity of flora here is a standout. The park is reputed to have over 900 plant species and we learnt that the extensive heath vegetation is called Kwongan. We completed the scenic drive and a few short walks that took us past Mount Lesueur and Cockleshell Gully. Good signage assisted in identifying various flora species.

Beautiful scenic location - a 18km long one way road, to soak in the sights - great to see the wildflowers and perfect for all the wild bushes in bloom as well. Looks of places to stop along the way, and take in the sights, or for the hikers - lots of trails to enjoy to suit the novice and the more experienced. Worth the drive out here!

The landscape here was unexpected. The low bush held lots of wildflowers that had to be discovered. The ride to the mountain walk was a series of getting in and out the car to take photos of blooms. It took us 45 mins to get to the carpark. The array of wildflowers was stunning. The mesas in the distance was a great feature. We enjoyed so many varieties of kangaroo paws we never knew existed.
A marvellous experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit over a couple of days to Lesueur. The flora is spectacular, even out of season. We undertook the Gairdner circuit walk - 2.5km - which was most enjoyable: well signposted and informative as well. The next day we undertook the 6.5km Yued Ponor trail which does have a couple of short harder sections but overall was a stunning walk. Stayed at the nearby Karda campground.

Lovely park. Nice one way road and plenty to admire especially if the flowers are out.
Its a metalled road but getting to that road is a long dusty unmetalled one. Dirty car afterwards.
Best combining with Pinnacles so the paid car pass covers both.

The entry track off Indian Ocead Drive is very difficult to find as signage is obscured by overgrown bush. The track itself is a nightmare. Boulders protruding 300mm above ground (not as described in tourist info. Ripped the protective sheeting under my RAV4, damaged fuel tank etc. Soft sand in places ensured bogging. Lucky we had the skills to extricate ourselves. As an experienced offroad driver my advice is to avoid this track until it is properly maintained. Never got to see Stockyard Gully as it was not worth the risk. Pity was really looking forward to it.

We really enjoyed our visit to Lesueur National Park although it was a little tricky to find. One of the roads leading to the National Park Scenic drive is unsealed (Cockleshell Gully Road).

The Scenic Drive is lovely. When you enter there is a small info post and a couple of info boards. Pick up an info guide and register your entry to the park ($11 cash, no change given).

We took the scenic drive and stopped in at the 'day use area' where you can take two walk trails. If memory serves me correctly the walk trail to the peak of Mount Lesueur is 4 km and the walk trail for Gardner walk is 2.5km. Make sure you bring adequate water as there is none available in this National Park.

We chose to do the walk to Mount Lesueur. It looks further and harder than it actually was. The walk included info boards posted throughout detailing the local flora and fauna. The view from the peak is vast and varied.

We saw a roo during this treck (photo included with this review) and two wedge tail eagles near the peak of Mt Lesueur. Lots of wildflowers, birds, bugs and beetles (and flies - bring appropriate head wear to keep them away from your face, ears, nose & mouth).

We ran out of time as the sun was setting but we would have liked to do the Gardiner walk and also check out cockleshell gully.

Overall, if you dont mind that the scenic drive is a bit out of the way (entry to the park is only pointed out with small road signs) then I think it is worth visiting.

Please be careful of wildlife driving through the national park. We had two near misses with kangaroos, seems they are curious of the car and come quite close!

We went at the perfect time of year, early to mid Sept after there had been a few showers. It also apparently helped that there had been a fire a couple of years earlier. The road into the park is gravel, in fairly good condition, then there is an 18km surfaced loop road with a lookout with walking trails half way and a picnic area near the end. We must have spent 2-3 hours on that 18km, stopping dozens of times to look at an amazing variety of wildflowers. The photos I took say more than words can.

The Lesueur mountain then subsequently the National Park, were named in honour of Charles Alexander Lesueur a natural history artist on board the French Ship the “Naturaliste”, as it sailed past. The loop around the park lives up to the promise on the back of the map of the town, of late blooming wildflowers. They are in fact still in profusion and the 18 kilometre loop is a very beautiful drive. We can’t resist making numerous stops for photos. I find it remarkable just how many different flowers there are. The most outstanding flower today, and there is only one left, is a large apricot one. The bottom half is like a fat bottle brush and the top part looks like it’s related to the waratah. It is really magnificent.
When we stop further around the loop to snap a vibrant red flower, there is a very handsome lizard on the top part, head back taking the sun blissfully until we arrive. Then he becomes nervous and I notice his grip tightens. Fortunately he stays put while Markus changes the lens on his camera for close up. I leave the pleasure of photographing this delightful little fellow to my better half because I don’t have the accoutrements for my camera for this kind of photo. I would scare him off no doubt by getting too close. Further on a big red kangaroo stops and watches up drive by, but unfortunately bounds off in an awful hurry when we pull over to take his photo. We no doubt are a bit of a surprise being the only people on the loop today.
It is a lot hotter here, even though it’ only a matter of about 10 k’s from the sea as the crow flies. The car thermometer indicates 32 degrees whereas back at Cervantes it was 23.5. As our air con has conked out, we have to keep the windows open and Markus gives me the hurry up if I linger to long taking a photo of something that he’s not interested in. There are so many magnificent specimens, some of which appear to be late flowering which is strange considering how hot it is.
The next morning over my first cup of tea, images of the beautiful flowers and landscape in Lesueur come back to me.

As you drive through the valley of the LeSueur National Park you will sense the presence of the Indigenous people, the Yuad clan of the Noongar people who lived here over 30,000 years ago. There is a grove on a creek bed where the atmosphere is redolent of their presence : a bartering place where aborignal peole came to trade kangaroo skins, tools, spears and nulla nullas; where women carried their babes in coolamons and nattered with their friends- shut your eyes, listen to the whir of dragonflies and you could be in a medieval european market place.
Follow the road to the lookout which looks back over the valley from whence you came. There is a poignant sign, a saying attributed to a wise old Yuad elder : "Look back, and feel good about where you have come from."
I shall never forget my experience in LeSueur and hope to return.
