Francois Peron National Park is an ideal destination for bush-camping, four-wheel driving, bush-walking and beach fishing, along with swimming and boating within the Shark Bay Marine Park.

Originally a pearling camp in the late 1880s, Herald Bight is now an informal campsite with toilets provided as basic facilities.

Campers are advised to be self-reliant and to bring enough drinking water for the duration of their stay.

This camping area is accessible only by high-clearance four-wheel drives. Tyre pressures must be reduced for the soft sand conditions. Caravans are not recommended due to the narrow and soft sand tracks.
