If travelling from Green Head turn off the Indian Ocean Drive to Coorow-Green Head road. Then turn right down Cockshell Gully Road (a dirt road). Eventually there is an 18 km tourist drive. t is a sealed loop road. The highlight is the track to the summit of Mt Lesueur, which is approximately 310 metres in elevation. There are excellent...

For 12 per vehicle you can visit this park and Nambung national park if you do it the same day. We were lucky to have a beautiful sunny and warm day while visiting this park. You pay at the entrance (honesty box). The road is a one-way loop with places to pull off. The trail we took (the one that... More

We visited the park in early October 2016 - it was an excellent time to visit, not too hot, not too many flies, and with a wonderful profusion of wildflowers. That said, it was evident that some of the flowers including the banksias were already a little past their peak. Maybe early September is the ideal time to visit -... More

We were here this time last year (Oct) and only had time to drive the Lesueur Scenic Drive loop, but the wildflowers were beautiful. Next time we will go back on a cooler day to do some of the walks, maybe in September when all the wildflowers are in bloom. We saw quite a few kangaroos off to the side... More

Cockleshell Gully Road leading into Lesueur National Park was impressive with vast areas of Grass Trees, Smokebush, Grevilleas and other wildflowers were more impressive than the Gairdner Road one way loop within the park. Also excellent wildflowers along the Coolimba-Eneabba Road on the Beekeepers Nature Reserve. It was a colder than usual winter and spring

A walk around the loop trail at Mt Leseur this week ( late September) was absolutely magnificent. The diversity and abundance of wild flowers was superb. Well worth a visit. A walk to the top of Mt Leseur was also fabulous although there were less wildflowers the landscape is lovely.

Visiting in September we enjoyed a rich and coloured flora, beautiful lookouts and, between 4 and 5 pm a lot of kangaroos. We travelled the scenic one way drive, making many stops to appreciate animals and flowers. Please note: after 4 pm it is easier to meet wildlife in the street, it is therefore essential to pay close attention to... More

Lesueur National Park is best to visit in late winter to spring (August - November) when the rich variety of wild flowers are blooming. It's one of Australia's key flora conservation reserves. To enjoy the park, you can choose to do the 18 km (one way) scenic loop and stop along the way to take photos or, better, combine it... More

We decided to go and see the wild flowers in the national park but found it a bit disappointing as we have seen so many fields of colourful wild flowers on our travels that we were expecting the same thing here, instead there is a 18 klm loop road and you don't get to see them the same way. It's... More

We took the short drive out to this National Park from Jurien Bay. Some of the drive is on dirt roads, but they are very good quality easily sit on 100km/hr on the dirt. The actual drive through the park is limited to 40km/hr on wood bitumen. I didn't have any preconceived ideas and boy, was I surprised at the... More
