This walk showcases an abundance of wildflowers in Spring along with interesting land formations and spectacular views to the Indian Ocean from the top of Mount Lesueur. A mecca for wildflower enthusiasts with over 820 species, including plants not found anywhere else in the world.
Lesueur Walk Trail is located in the Lesueur National Park, approximately 30 kilometres from Jurien Bay, a three hour drive north of Perth, Western Australia. After driving half of the Lesueur Scenic Drive, you arrive at Drummonds day use area at the foot of the GaiRoadner Range. There is a trailhead including interpretive signs explaining the biodiversity and natural heritage values of the region which is renouned internationally for its floral diversity. This diversity is threatened by the soil born plant disease dieback, which can be spread by the movement of infected soil. Please ensure all vehicles, boots and walking equipment are free of soil, dirt and other plant material before entering the park and make use of the boot baths at the start of the trail. The first 250m of the trail leads to the Wilson lookout and is wide and bituminized, suitable for prams and wheelchairs. The remainder of the four kilometre trail is sandy and leads towaRoads the flat top hill (messa). The initial section is flat but then climbs up the slope of Mount Lesueur via switchback. The summit is across the top of the messa on the other side to the ascent and rewaRoads walkers with spectacular views. Contact Department of Parks and Wildlife Jurien Bay on 08 9688 6000 if you are planning an overnight walk in the park.
About the region
One of the most important flora conservation reserves in Western Australia, Lesueur National Park erupts into colour in late winter and spring as the park’s diverse flora comes out in flower, making it a paradise for wildflower enthusiasts. Landforms in the park vary from salt lakes and remnant coastal dunes in the north-west through to laterite ridges in the east. The flat-topped laterite mesas of Mount Lesueur and Mount Michaud are features of the park.
