Fitzgerald River National Park is a national park in Western Australia, southeast of Perth, in the Shire of Ravensthorpe and the Shire of Jerramungup.DescriptionThe park includes the Barren Mountains and Eyre Range and the Fitzgerald River as well as incorporating the Fitzgerald Biosphere. There are 62 plant species which are unique to the park and a further 48 are rarely found elsewhere.Recording almost 40,000 visitors in 2008, the park received $20 million in funding from the federal government's economic stimulus plan with the state government contributing an additional $20 million. The investment is to be used to redevelop and seal 80km of roads within the park, construct a walk trail from Bremer Bay to Hopetoun and upgrade existing recreational facilities.Point Ann is one of the two places (the other is Head of the Bight) along Australia's coast where southern right whales come to calve during their winter migration.Within the National Park is the Quaalup Homestead Wilderness Retreat (now run as a hotel) that was built in 1858 by the Wellstead Family. In 1890, the Hassell family took over the pastoral lease and the homestead.The park can be accessed from the western side via Bremer Bay, or from the eastern side via Hopetoun. The central area of the park is only accessible with a four-wheel drive vehicle or on foot.

    A fantastic and hugely biodiverse region where you'll see fantastic flora and fauna. Climbing West Mount Barren is a must, as is the hakea trail. One of my favourite parts of the world when I want to get away

    One of the best camping, trekking, beach experiences around - it doesn't get any better. But bring your fly mesh masks for the hot days! Kristy, road in from highway to pt Anne is good and camping facilities there are excellent.
