Esperance

Western Australia

The Shire of Esperance has a population of 14,000 and is located on Western Australia’s southeast coast about 725 kilometres from Perth by road. The Shire of Esperance comprises some of the most spectacular landscapes in Western Australia. It includes over 400km of coastline ranging from the gently undulating bays and picturesque islands of the Recherche Archipelago to the spectacular cliffs of the Great Australian Bight.
The environment and agricultural aspects of the Shire of Esperance are a significant part of its heritage, values and identity. The National Parks, Ramsar wetlands and dramatic coastline provide a number of recreational and tourism opportunities. The network of small towns, such as Condingup, Salmon Gums, Grass Patch, Gibson and Cascade support our agriculture industry.
The town of Esperance has long been a sustainable community. It has not suffered the devastating fluctuations in populations other regional towns have experienced as a result of the significant shifts in industry and agriculture, nor has it had the same degree of urban drift.
The natural beauty of Esperance, its climate, isolation and lifestyle continue to attract people to the town and encourage them to stay.

Esperance enjoys a moderate Mediterranean-like climate all year round. It is a regional port and is a developing district.
The town has a complete range of services including all shopping, educational, medical, social and recreational facilities. It is a popular tourist resort and the area abounds in natural and manmade attractions. Its coastline is spectacular and unspoilt.
One of Esperance’s greatest assets is its National Parks. There are five in the region which comprise one-fifth of the total Shire area. Also, there is the Archipelago of the Recherche, more than 100 islands, protected by the status of an A-class reserve.
