Frenchman Peak in Cape Le Grand National Park

Frenchman Peak

Cape Le Grand National Park

Directions - Frenchman Peak is located within Cape Le Grand National Park, about an hours drive east of Esperance. Take Fisheries Road north out of town and take the turnoff onto Merrivale Road (look for the Lucky Bay signs). Follow this road until you reach Cape Le Grand Road and continue into the park. The Frenchman Peak Trail Head is located just off Lucky Bay Road and is well signed. 

The Hike - With our Easter road trip almost coming to an end with visits to Fitzgerald River National Park and Esperance keeping us busy, there was one final spot on the menu before we departed for home. Cape Le Grand National Park is famous for a few things, one being Lucky Bay and another being the hike up to the 242m ASL summit of Frenchman Peak. We were here to see both with the plan being to stay at Lucky Bay for our last night and to get in the Class 5 hike that is Frenchman Peak. Leaving our AirBnB we departed for Cape Le Grand and only being an hour away we had plenty of time to explore the park once we had selected our campsite.
