Story

Located in the south-west of Western Australia, an internationally recognised 'biodiversity hotspot', the Lesueur National Park is one of the most important reserves for plant conservation in Australia.

The national park supports a rich variety of native plants, with more than 900 plant species found within the park's 27,235 hectares. This includes nine plants found nowhere else in the world and 111 plants found only in the local region.

The national park is particularly rich in plants from the Proteaceae family, including Banksias, Hakeas, Dryandras, Grevilleas and Isopogons. It is also rich in other plant families such as Fabaceae (peas), Myrtaceae (myrtles) and Droseraceae (sundews).

Lesueur National Park is located around 220 kilometres north of Perth, near the towns of Green Head and Jurien Bay. It is the 105th place included in the National Heritage List.
