Thistle Cove, Esperance

5.0
#1 of 7 in Wildlife in Esperance
Thistle Cove is best known for its intriguingly sculpted granite boulders, including a "whistling" rock that captures the sound of the wind. This secluded small bay features a sandy beach fringed by sloping granite rocks and backed by freshwater wetlands. In addition to swimming, snorkeling, diving, and surfing, visitors often go for a bushwalk to the nearby Lucky Bay, which provides rewarding views over rugged headlands sloping steeply into the ocean. Amenities include a picnic table. Add Thistle Cove to your Esperance travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Esperance tour itinerary planner.

  • Loved this area and it is brimming with wildlife too. Good photo opportunities and nice rock walking. Parking available also  more »
  • I'm not going to the beach, I just looked at it from Whistling Stone. Is definitely quieter than Lucky Bay.

  • That was a really great natural beauty for someone not to miss in Cape Grande National Park.
  • Breath taking place.
