Beaches for Babes

Best Beaches for Bubs & Children

Esperance is famous for its clear turquoise water and white sand. The most child friendly beaches that have little to no swell are: the Foreshore from Taylor Street Jetty all the way to Castletown Quays and also out at Bandy Creek Boat Harbour.

Creative, Colourful & Cultural

The Cannery Arts Centre

Located on Norseman Road opposite the beach, The Cannery is a vibrant community arts centre delivering exhibitions, and workshops to both locals and visitors. It regularly offers specialised children’s art classes and group activities during school holidays.

The Esperance Public Library

A great place where you can quietly relax on comfy couches, access the internet (free WIFI or use a computer for a small charge) and read the latest newspaper publications. Located on Windich Street, the Library has a designated children’s area, and on Mondays and Thursdays at 10:30am everyone is welcome to come along, hear a story, sing some songs and create some crafts. The Library also provides school holidays programs for children.

Esperance Museum

One of WA’s most outstanding regional museums, the Esperance Municipal Museum contains historical objects from the 1800’s right through to the modern day, including parts of the 1979 Skylab, which was Americas’ first space station. There are plenty of displays and artefacts to discover. It’s the perfect rainy day option. Check their Facebook page or website for current opening hours.
