For all lovers of historical monuments, Stonehenge on the outskirts of Esperance is an absolute MUST visit! You will not be disappointed.Having visited the original Stonehenge many moons ago, we were a little skeptical that this modern version would live up to the hype. It certainly does and because it is a replica of what Stonehenge probably would have looked like when it was originally built around 1950BC, the sight of it is simply breathtaking.
Birthed from a passion for history and part of their semi-retirement plan, owners Kim and Jillian Beale are very friendly and welcoming – after all this is their home! Imagine waking up to that view every morning!Consisting of 137 stones of Esperance Pink Granite sourced from the nearby quarry, this is the only full size replica outside of the UK and it is huge!You can takes as long as you like to explore and enjoy this mammoth work of wonder!
This is a photographers dream and not only can you capture some amazing angles of the monument itself, but the backdrop is stunning also.This was such a well thought out labour of love, paying homeage to the Summer and Winter Solstices that on those specific dates the suns rays align and shine in spectacular fashion.Plenty of parking and they sell refreshments of tea, coffee, soft drinks and ice creams, as well as Stonehenge memorabilia and souvenirs of both the monument and of Esperance.
Only 15 minutes out of Esperance it really is worth the short drive especially on a sunny day, though it would be impressive no matter the weather!This really is one for the itinerary that is sure to impress!Where: 4323 Merivale Road, Esperance, WA 6450
