About this park
Lesueur National Park is a botanic oasis that will delight all nature lovers. It’s a haven to over 900 plant species including 10% of Western Australia’s known plants - acacias, hibbertias, melaleucas, many species of orchids, they’re all here!
In spring the park transforms into a wildflower wonderland. The vibrant colours will have you reaching for your camera! Lesueur National Park has a superb diversity of plants, views, and wildlife and is great to visit any time of the year but hey, don't take our word for it.
Choose one of the many walk trails to explore this important conservation area. You may spot some of the abundant wildlife too. The park is home to 122 species of native bird and 52 reptile species. They all rely on the park’s diverse vegetation for survival. Explore fascinating natural attractions and discover salt lakes, coastal dunes, Mount Lesueur and Mount Michaud. The 4km trail to the top of Mount Lesueur has panoramic ocean views. For the adventurist consider the overnight Yued Ponar walk. You can also explore this beautiful park by car. The Lesueur Scenic Drive takes you through the most scenic parts of the park and its attractions.
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 quality of the park. So many wildflowers on display. We photographed so many beautiful flowers and lovely landscapes. Nice area to have your picnic lunch on the tables provided. Toilets as well. Do yourself a favour and take the time to visit this NP.

Plants, wildlife and fungi
Lesueur is relatively free of the soil-borne plant pathogen dieback (Phytophthora spp.). To ensure it remains this way boot cleaning stations are provided on walk trails in the park. Please ensure you use them and stay on marked roads and trails. The vegetation and flora in the park are particularly susceptible to dieback.
