"Growing Community with great amenities"

Esperance is a beautiful town on the southern coast of Western Australia which was often home to sealers and whaling ships. The area is rich in history and you could spend many ours looking at historical site and information. Esperance boasts some beautiful beaches with swimming and surfing popular and is well serviced by bus and air as well as being as easy drive from the main highway at Kalgoorlie. Visit the Esperance Museum or take a drive along the Great ocean drive to see amazing scenery including the granite headlands, the Pink Lake and the Wind Farm which is used for generating electricity. Catch the panoramic views of the Recherche Archipelago from Rotary Lookout. Visit the cape Le Grand National Park and Cape Arid National Park where fishing, boating, bird watching etc can be enjoyed. Dogs are not permitted in the national parks and it pays to check with the local authorities regarding camping, etc. Home prices are steady in the area and rentals are of average price in this region. There is some great shopping in Esperence with many supermarkets dotted around the town as well as speciality shops and boutiques. There are pharmacies and medical centres, video shpos and travel agents etc. Educational facilities in Esperance include primary and secondary schools both state and private.

"A lovely pristine town bordering the Great Australian Bight."

Esperance is a town that often gets left out of people's travels because it is off the beaten track. It is small, pristine clean, the beaches are magnificent and with the whitest of sand.

If you are driving west you either have to drop down from Norseman some 200kms and then circle the coast around towards Perth, or you drive back up north and head across through Kalgoorlie. In saying all that, I do know retirees who have said that they would love to live there because it is such a lovely town.

Although it has a certain amount of tourism, it basically services the wheat, sheep, cattle farming, fishing and forestry industries. It has a port servicing these industries.

The famous Pink Lake is only a short distance out of town and is quite a stunning site at certain times of the day.
