An unspoiled coastline, stunningly white beaches, four national parks, and seaside adventure among seals, whales, emus and eagles. You must be in Esperance. This area of southwest Australia's Golden Outback is one of the country's fastest growing travel destinations due to the spectacular beaches, unique wildflowers, and a temperate year-round climate. The Recherche Archipelago, 105 islands and 1500 isles off the coast, is recognized as one of Australia's marine wilderness areas, providing sheltered breeding grounds for sea lions, seals, penguins and the endangered black-footed rock wallaby. The islands are also a haven for diving, snorkeling, fishing, and sailing.
