RAC Parks & Resorts have just finished a $12 million upgrade on their flagship RAC Esperance Holiday Park, learn more and check availability here.

We’ve enjoyed doing a little bit of deep diving down in Esperance over the past couple of months, most recently giving you a little step-by-step rundown on how best to enjoy a weekend getaway down near some of the whitest beaches on earth. And should you take us up on that little guide, read on below to find out why RAC Esperance Holiday Park is a great option for accommodation over the coming months…

It’s a great time of year weather-wise

Outside of the absolute hottest months in January/February, autumn is a wonderful time of year in Esperance. The daytime temperatures during March and into April consistently hover around the mid-20s, with minimums sitting at a comfortable average of around 15 degrees. Rainfall also drops right off until May, and the average water temperature hits its peak (around 19 degrees) in March.


There are plenty of availabilities outside of school holidays

Locking in accommodation across iconic WA destinations like Esperance can be difficult at times, especially during school holidays… However, outside of the April school holidays there’s plenty of accommodation options available at RAC Esperance Holiday Park from March til May. Especially if you’re more of the camping/caravanning type, with powered and ensuite sites ready and waiting your arrival.


You’re on the doorstep to some of the world’s best beaches

Esperance Bay (pictured, below) across the road from the Holiday Park is very chill and family friendly, and from there your choices are endless! Eleven Mile Beach is popular and sheltered from prevailing winds; Lucky Bay is littered with kangaroos lazing around happy for a selfie or two; West Beach is the go-to spot for surfers in town; Twilight Bay is instantly iconic; Wylie Bay is a 4WD-only gem; and if you’ve got the time Wharton Beach is 100km out of town but absolutely worth the drive.

Adventure awaits along some excellent national park walking trails

There are numerous world class hikes around the Esperance region, particularly within the spectacular Cape Le Grande National Park. The highlight of Cape Le Grande is surely Frenchman Peak, a sharp 2.5km granite dome with a famous cave with awesome views. Cape Arid National Park also has a few treks, including the relatively chill Len Otte Nature Trail, along with the far more challenging Mt Arid Walktrail and the Tagon Coastal Trail (14km return).


There’s plenty to keep you busy (or chill) at the park

If coastal treks aren’t your thing and you’re more in it for some proper R&R, relaxing has never been easier at RAC Esperance Holiday Park. The new fit-out features plenty of shady trees and grassed areas, a recreation room (with table tennis), gas barbecues and a large camp kitchen, a kids nature playground and of course, the heated swimming pool.


You can bring your other best friends along too!

Not only is RAC Esperance Holiday Park dog-friendly (and even features a couple of pet-friendly cabins you can stay in), there’s also a Pet Pamper Station on site. No one wants a sandy pooch traipsing through your tent at the end of a long day on the beach, and the on-site dog wash will have them spick and span in no time.


There’s some great food and drink places just around the corner

Outside of doing your own shopping and using the ample cooking facilities available at RAC Esperance Holiday Park, the town of Esperance has plenty of delicious dining options for any time of day. Fuel up at Downtown Espresso in the morning, grab lunch with a view at Taylor St Quarters or some delicious seafood at Fish Face before enjoying a well-earned cold one at the end of the day at Lucky Bay Brewing or The Pier Hotel.
