Fitzgerald River National Park
Situated some 180 kilometres north-east of Albany, Fitzgerald River National Park straddles the coast between the towns of Bremer Bay and Hopetoun. Not as commonly visited as many of Western Australia’s other national parks, this is a world biosphere because of its incredible plant life – it contains more than 20 per cent of Western Australia’s plants, some 1900 species, and over 100 are found only in the park and its immediate surrounds. There are some easy walking trails, and excellent vantage points to see southern right whales along the coast. Other attractions are the great camping, picnic and barbecue spots, but you will have to bring your own drinking water.
