The park was named after the French explorer and naturalist François Péron who was involved in scientific expeditions to Western Australia. The area was once a pastoral station, but now the park is one of the most essential wilderness regions in Australia and takes care of many endangered species. From the Cape Peron heights, you can witness manta rays, turtles, dugong, and sharks splashing in the water below.
