The Homestead is very interesting, if you like historical information and actual artefacts and residences associated with sheep shearing. Farther in to the park, there is lots of sand/ dirt road, so to access all of the sights, a 4-wheel drive is necessary.

2WD access to the old homestead and visitors centre makes for an interesting visit but obviously a 4WD gives you access to the best of Francois Peron National Park.

I booked a 4WD tour through the Ocean Park. Guide was incredibly knowledgeable and a delicious fresh lunch was provided. Would definitely recommend this tour.
