The area is noted for its beautiful coastline and is home to the Cyclops wave, which is claimed to be the worlds heaviest wave, with massive amounts of water unloading onto the shallow reef.
The only port in the south-east of WA, Esperance is one of the deepest ports in southern Australia, and is capable of handling vessels of up to 180,000 tonnes.
Exports through the port are about 8 million tonnes per year, including 1.8 million tonnes of grain, and 5.5 million tonnes of iron ore from Koolyanobbing.
The region has spectacular coastal scenery, plus an abundance of wildlife, pristine beaches and National Parks. The area is ideal for fishing, surfing, sailing and sand boarding.
Located off the coast is the Recherche Archipelago, which consists of over 100 islands, and provides excellent opportunities for diving and snorkeling activities.
The area is recognised as having some of the best beaches in Australia and its one of the few places where it is possible to see Kangaroos sunbathing on the beach!
The Esperance Show is organised and operated by the Esperance & Districts Agricultural Society and runs annually in mid October.
