Esperance History: Esperance still enjoys the laid back quality of life. In the 1970's when part of the Space Program of the United States of America landed in the region the town became world history. The unique pieces are housed in the Esperance Museum along with old farming machinery and implements from the 1950's.

In 1792, D Entrecasteaux used Esperance Bay for shelter during a massive storm, naming the town after his vessel. The first settlers drove stock overland from Northam, northeast of Perth in 1863. The town grew with the development of the Overland Telegraph in 1876 and boomed as a gateway town for provisions for miners in Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie in the 1890's gold rush. The town really began to progress in the 1950's when the Esperance Downs Research Station was built.
Today Esperance survives on Wheat, sheep and cattle farming plus tourism, commercial fishing and forestry.

                  For squeaky white beaches, getting off the beaten track and bunking down under the stars, head south to Esperance. The place is so relaxed even the kangaroos sun bake on the beach. Esperance lies along the Southern Coast of WA. It is 721KM from Perth and is known as 'Australia's Whitest Beaches'. Stunning snow white secluded beaches and clear crystal waters unique to the Archipelago of the Recherche or the Bay of Isles, consisting of over 100 islands scattered throughout the 4000 sq kms of A-class nature reserves.

                  The Great Ocean drive is a circular loop of 38kms from Esperance Town square showcasing stunning views of beaches and bays, Twilight Cove, Blue Haven, Observatory Point, just to name a few. Experience the famous attraction of the Wind Farms scattered from Salmon Beach thru to Ten Mile Lagoon, which produce the power supply for Esperance.

                  Travel along to Pink Lake, a massive salt lake that glows a bright pink at certain times of the year, due to the dunalella salina algae and changing weather conditions.

                  To the East approx. 40 km from Esperance the magnificent Cape Le Grande National Park boasting the famous Frenchmans Peak and multiple bays.

                  Four take you National Parks take you up close to pristine nature with beautiful seasonal wildflowers, granite headlands, rugged coastal scenery and views over the islands of the Recherche Archipelago.

                  Great for camping, fishing, bush walking, one of the best spots is Lucky Bay. The campsite has solar hot showers, camp kitchens & BBQ's and plenty of bush walks with excellent coastal views.

                  Esperance has heaps to do including four wheel drive safaris, coach tours, helicopter tours, island cruises, diving charters, fishing, abseiling, skateboarding, sand boarding, canoeing, mini golf & a steam train!

                  Check out the museum, arts centre, art galleries and boutique aquarium with a touch pool for the kids.

                  Esperance is an ideal swimming spot, while West Beach, Fourth Beach & Observatory Beach boats some of the best surfing.

                  If snorkelling appeals, locals say the lagoon to the east of West Beach is good as is idyllic-sounding Blue Haven and Twilight Cove.

                  Esperance is situated a one and a half hour flight from Perth or a 750km drive. It's an ideal location for beach lovers.

                  The town is nestled on the shores of Esperance Bay with hundreds of islands dotting the coast making up the Recherche Archipelago. The authentic way to see Esperance is by four wheel drive.
