Lucky Bay is a bay located at on the south coast of Western Australia, in the Cape Le Grand National Park.It received its name from Matthew Flinders, who discovered it in January 1802. Flinders had sailed into the hazardous Archipelago of the Recherche, and found his ship surrounded by islands and rocks with nightfall coming on. Recounting the adventure, he wrote the following: In 2017 it was scientifically tested as having the whitest sand in Australia, possibly the World, knocking Hyams Beach NSW off its perch.

  • Beautiful beach, spectacular when the sun is out. Tame kangaroos Entry fee to park is $13 per vehicle. Can take your car onto the beach (don't need a 4WD) Sand is so solid more like tarmac Peaceful and relaxing Worth the trip and visit!
  • What a spectacular part of the world this is. The beach is pristine with amazing white sand plus the aqua water. The wallabies are an added bonus.
  • Whitest beach I have seen in my life so far! Keep in mind that there were quite a few seaweeds on the beach so you may wanna try nearby beaches if you don't wanna show them on your holiday photos =) After spending hours around the beach, we managed to see some kangaroos on the beach - Such a cool experience! If you find any litters around the area, please pick up as much as you can so we can keep it pristine and beautiful...
  • Beautiful blue water and white sand.Do not miss going to Whistle Cove beach next door as well (3 mins drive).
  • We didn't see the kangaroos on the beach but this was a small disappointment to an otherwise magical place.
