The small crayfishing town of Leeman is a top spot for chasing your own catch of the day, or witnessing one of Mother Nature's most diverse floral displays as nearby Lesueur National Park is transformed into a sea of colour with the blooms of over 820 wildflower species.

You can reach Leeman in just over three hours, driving north from Perth via the scenic route along the Indian Ocean Drive. The route passes by inviting white sandy beaches and one of Australia's most unique landscapes, the Pinnacles Desert, so you may be tempted to take it a little slower and make the journey part of the adventure.

Vast swathes of native bushlands stretching inland, from the Indian Ocean Drive to the Brand Highway and beyond, are ablaze with the blooms of wildflowers between the months of July and November. If you're a nature lover and bird watcher, make a beeline for the Beekeeper's Reserve and Lesueur National Park clutching your camera and binoculars. Take the road east to Perenjori, and you'll also see the region's famous wreath flowers and vast blankets of everlastings during the wildflower season.

A little closer to Leeman, Stockyard Gully National Park was once a favourite stop for pioneering stockmen taking the old north stock route from Geraldton to the markets in Perth. The caves, gullies and bushland here are havens for birds and wildlife, but you'll need a four wheel drive to explore these wonders.

In town, you may hear some long-time locals and visitors refer to Leeman as Snag Island. This was the original name gazetted in 1962 and remained so until the name Leeman was issued in 1971.

Since those early days, Leeman's white sandy beaches and protected bays have grown in popularity, and with the addition of a first-class jetty and boat ramp, it's now a top spot for fishing and diving. For some freshwater action, head inland to Lake Indoon to enjoy boating, water skiing, canoeing or a lazy picnic.

To linger a little longer in Leeman, choose from self-contained holiday units or pitch yourself at the caravan park.

Leeman: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Stockyard Gully National Park

Stockyard Gully National Park is home to a fascinating group of limestone caves that lead to an underwater river system. The largest cave is an impressive sight. Walk through the 300 metre long cave which is covered by a sandy floor. The more adventurous will enjoy the challenge of the smaller caves which require a little more manoeuvring to get through. Look out for the colonies of bats as you make your way through the caves.

Relax and enjoy a picnic amongst the trees, relishing in the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings. Keep an eye out for the variety of birdlife and fauna that live here.

Camping is allowed within the National Park, though there are no camping facilities. Ensure you bring plenty of water as there is no fresh water available. A four wheel drive vehicle is also necessary to explore most of the rugged terrain.

Stockyard Gully National Park is three hours northeast of Perth, and a short drive from Coorow.
