Why visit Francois Peron?

Francois Peron National Park is part of the Shark Bay world heritage area and is known for its contrasting red cliffs, white beaches and turquoise waters. It has a rich cultural history beginning around 30,000 years ago with the Malgana people and a fascinating recent pastoral history.
