Amazing National Parks & Wild Places in Western Australia

Western Australia has stunning natural areas, some protected in National Parks and Indigenous Protected areas while much is also still on private Property.

Many of Western Australia’s National Parks can be visited in a 2wd, you just may be restricted to which roads you can drive on however there are also big areas of Western Australia only accessible by 4wd.

For example the Gibb River Road is one region where if you are not confident in operating a 4wd its worth jumping on a guided 4wd bus tour to explore.

Cape Le Grand

A stunning National Park towards the south eastern corner of Western Australia’s coast, Cape Le Grand has beautiful beaches, great bushwalks and some really nice campground options if you are looking to camp.

Cape Range

Home to beautiful beach front campgrounds and a great spot to snorkel Ningaloo reef, Cape Range National Park is well worth an extended visit if you want the chance for the best weather for repeat snorkels.


Unfortunately while I have not had the chance to visit Karijini yet my parents have and loved it. When working as a park range in remote northern NT a fair few years ago now, many visitors chatting to me about their holidays would tell me Karijini was there favourite National Park they had visited in Australia. Which is a pretty glowing review!
