You need a 4WD to enjoy the driving. Soft sand and bumpy tracks. Great beaches to get to...make sure you don’t get stuck. Enjoyable day, well worth a visit.

We went into the Peron National Park to go visit the homestead. They state that the road into here which is about 5 kms is suitable for 2WD, but we saw 2 cars that couldn't get through. Some parts of the road were very thick...More

We joined a half day tour to Francois Peron National Park. Really no regret! The park is full of wonderful beaches. We could even see sharks. Please bring enough sunscreen.

A lovely area to explore and be close to nature. Big Lagoon is lovely and you can spend hours here enjoying the water or kayaking hope to catch sight of rays, sharks, turtles, but they are fast!!! Fish, relax, camp.
