How could we leave this out? Esperance – one of Western Australia’s most iconic destinations, where people from all over the world come to visit.

Sure, it might not exactly fall into a weekend road trip – but if you take an extended drive – you can land in one of the best views this country has to offer. It’s almost an 8-hour drive right through the middle of WA but we definitely wouldn’t be writing about it if it wasn’t worth it.
