Le Grand Trail is a 4.3 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
This beautiful upspoilt sandy beach features a campground close to the park entrance. Facilities include barbecues, toilets, tables, picnic areas, water and an information bay. It is recommended that you bring a portable gas stove for cooking. Always carry your own drinking water supply. You cannot book campsites: the campground operates on a first come, first served basis. The French were among the first to explore this coast, arriving in December 1792. An expedition under the command of Admiral Bruny D'Entrecasteaux had sailed east along the western south coast of New Holland. The expedition's naturalist, Labillardiere, described the events that led to the naming of the southern cape: 'L'Esperance was driving towards the land so rapidly that she was on the point of being stranded when Citizen Le Grand ... went to the masthead in the very midst of the tempest and almost immediately came down, explaining with enthusiasm that the ship was out of danger! He then pointed out the anchoring place ... This discovery saved both the ships [L'Esperance and Le Recherche] ... We gave [the cape] ... the name of Citizen Le Grand'.
