About the Shire

The Shire of Esperance, located on Western Australia's southeast coast, is one of the most progressive and modern country communities in Australia.

The Shire has an area of 44,336 square kilometres, giving the region one of the lowest population densities to be found anywhere. It extends from Munglinup to Israelite Bay and north to the Daniell rail siding. It includes over 400 kilometres of coastline, ranging from gently undulating bays and the picturesque islands of the Recherche Archipelago to the spectacular cliffs of the Great Australian Bight.
