Not exactly what I expected but extremely worth the effort! We expected more of a coastal drive, but most of the 40kms from the entrance to the top were not overly scenic. Persist though as once you reach the top, the view is incredible! Cape Peron has the most beautiful colours it is like an oil painting come to life.... More

We had intended to camp at the Big lagoon but it was closed, having a 4WD we decided to visit the park anyway. As you reach the entry point to the park at the Homestead, you’ll find 2 compressed air de/inflation tyre points. We reduced our tyre pressures to 20psi. The tracks are generally compacted red sand with some corrugations... More

Really really great Nationalpark. They want a 12$entry fee. There is also a AIR fuel station at the beginning to let down the pressure of the tires. The streets are very sandy. Especially at the end. ONLY 4WD Nice tracks. Take your time

Althought the drive was a little daunting at times on the sand (do reduce your PSI), I am so glad we visited as the beaches and views were stunning. We saw dolphins, whales, rays and the amazing dugong. Didn't camp herebut I wish we had.

My husband and I swagged her for 2 nights When we first started the trip into the national park it was advised to let the air pressed from the tyres. I don't think this is needed IF you have decent all terrain tyres as some of the track is quiet compacted and reduces the travelling speed. We camped at gregories,... More

We did a drive in our 4x4 through Francois Peron National Park a few weeks ago and it was good, not stellar but good. Some nice views, glad we had the 4x4, Gregories beach is nice and we saw lots of animals in and out of the water which was neat. The drive out to Monkey Mia Beach is good... More
