The aboriginal name for the Esperance area is Kepa Kurl - the place where the water lies down like a boomerang. Esperance’s current name is accredited to the French, when two ships, ‘L’Esperance’ and ‘Recherche’ were forced to seek shelter in 1792.
The Esperance region is characterized by spectacular coastal scenery, and abundance of wildlife, pristine beaches and National Parks. Esperance is a paradise for sea and sun lovers, and provides ideal conditions for fishing, surfing, sailing and sand boarding.
Just off the Esperance coast is the Recherche Archipelago, consisting of over 100 islands, offering top class diving and snorkeling opportunities.
Esperance has now been recognised as having the best beaches in Australia and its one of the only places that you may see Kangaroos sunbathing on the beach!
Esperance is 721 Km south East of Perth, Western Australia, and offers you the chance to escape to a coastal paradise, and discover the real secret of WA.
