Belvidere Day Use Site & Interpretive Walk

Belvidere Day Use Site & Interpretive Walk
Belvidere Day Use Site & Interpretive Walk is located in the Leschenault Peninsula Conservation Park.

Following European Settlement, they mostly used the Leschenault Peninsula for stock grazing. In 1838, Mr Thomas Little purchased 741.4 hectares on the Leschenault Peninsula on behalf of Charles Prinsep, and named the homestead Belvidere (also known as Belvedere) in honour of the Prinsep mansion in Calcutta, India.

Little managed the property to raise horses and cattle for the Indian Army. The Homestead also held fabulous parties and horse racing events where people would travel for miles to attend.

In the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s, Belvidere became a commune for alternative life-stylers, with up to 14 humpies and houses.

The Belvidere Interpretive Walk is a 1.5km walk which includes an information shelter with documents and the rich cultural history of Belvidere.

The day-use site, which overlooks the Leschenault Estuary, also includes a BBQ with picnic facilities and toilets.
