Francois Peron National Park
From the top of the rust-red sand dunes, here you will not just see azure blue water and white sand beaches. You are also likely to see dugong, dolphins, manta rays, sharks and turtles in the clear waters of the Shark Bay World Heritage Area. The 52 500-hectare national park is home to some of the most endangered animals in Western Australia, but you will need a high-clearance 4WD to travel across the terrain or to reach the camping areas. Of course, you can join a 4WD tour with a focus on the seasonal wildlife and wildflowers in the park, with the eco-accredited Monkey Mia Wildsights.
