Camp site located inCape Le Grand National Park on a spectacular beach. There are hot showers and flushing toilets, but can get crowded in school holidays. Set up camp at Lucky Bay Campground, explore the trails and visit the beach which is arguably the whitest sand in Australia. Be aware that these beaches are notoriously treacherous for vehicles and it is easy to become bogged in the most innocent looking wet or dry sand. Ask the ranger about surface conditions and tides. If you drive your four-wheel drive vehicle onto the beach, beware of other beach users and wildlife and drive slowly. Normal road rules apply.HISTORY While exploring the south coast of Australia in 1802, Matthew Flinders sailed a dangerous route through the Recherche Archipelago. He named it Lucky Bay when his vessel HMS Investigator took shelter here from a summer storm. The botanist Robert Brown went ashore and explored a diverse and largely unknown flora, discovering and naming many new species. A plaque on the rocks at the eastern end of the bay celebrates this historic event.
