The lake system called the Big Lagoon is located within Francois Peron National Park in Shark Bay, Western Australia. This is a popular spot for fishing, boating, camping or a family picnic as it is fairly close to Denham - about 12 kilometres from the tyre pressure station. There are two air compressors (located either side of the road) within Francois Peron National Park to help visitors adjust tyre pressure - deflate to 20 psi to drive on the sandy tracks and then inflate again before hitting the tar on the drive home. We thought this was a great facility which was well sign posted (in several languages) but we still came across people who had not followed instruction and became bogged.  

We headed into Big Lagoon for a picnic lunch and enjoyed watching some kite surfers set up and launch onto the lagoon for some great sailing. It was very windy so there were able to fly across the water. Big Lagoon was once a land-locked saline lake that is now a shallow inland bay - rising sea-levels flowed into lake system creating a beautiful turquoise lagoon. Fishing is permitted in some area so you will need to check with Parks and Wildlife or see the Shark Bay Marine Reserves Brochure.

We saw several people setting up for the night in the camping area beside the lagoon which has gas barbeques and toilet facilities - camping fees apply and there is a fee collection box at the park entrance.
