Lake King

Lake King is five and a half hours drive east of Perth. The town is a stopping place for visitors travelling across arid country and through Frank Hann National Park to Norseman. It is a crossroads centre with a tavern and several stores.

Travel east along the fascinating Lake King Causeway as you cross 10 kilometres of salt lakes studded with natural scrub and wildflowers. Take time to enjoy the scenery along the longest West Australian road built across a salt lake.

Lake King has a very attractive stone fronted community Church and a tavern built locally from rammed earth with a motel nearby. Drive down the Magdhaba Track to Roe Hill Lookout through a conservation reserve of native fauna.

The Norseman Road from Lake King to the east passes through the Frank Hann National Park (61,420 hectares) about 25 kilometres to the east of town and offers a good representation of the heath flora of inland sand plains.

Another magnificent tourist attraction on the eastern end of the Norseman Road is Peak Charles, which rises 480 metres above the surroundings.

In season the surrounding countryside puts on a wonderful display of colourful wildflowers. Visit the Lake King saltwater lake, picnic at the Mount Madden Cairn and Lookout, or visit a yabby (small freshwater rock lobster) farm.

Lake King offers bed and breakfasts, hotel/motel accommodation and a caravan park.
