The Lake King town ship is very small. That said the epicenter is the tavern, war memorial and church.
Still traveling along Route 40 Lake King is the next community we visit. Lake King is an hours’ drive east of Hyden. 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.
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.
The Frank Hann National Park is located 25 kilometres to the east of town and offers a good representation of the heath flora of inland sand plains. Lake King offers bed and breakfasts, hotel/motel accommodation and a caravan park.
Blink and you may miss Lake King. The tavern will be refreshing moment over a cool drink.
