After our rather epic journey across to WA we were thankful that our drive time down to Esperance was a little under 3 hours. We headed straight to the tourist information to find out where to stay. I already had a couple of the National parks in mind but it is always good to check on these things and lucky we did as the road to Cape Le Grand National park had been washed away just a few days earlier in the bad storms so we would have to take a detour.
The journey across to the national park was a lot further than we had imagined and therefore supplies and petrol were at a bit of a low when we got into the park, we just had to hope that our chosen campsite wasn't too much further.
Lucky Bay had all the facilites we needed for a bush campsite, they even had solor showers which makes a nice change. The bay itself has just been announced as the winner of Australia's best beach and we could definitley see why. It is the most beautiful beach I think we have ever seen. The sand was the colour of powdered snow and the water was as clear as drinking water, truely amazing. We had a fab spot overlooking the bay and with Kangeroo's hoping past it was real bliss and at only $7.50 per person per night an absolute bargain!!
