Relax in the heart of the Fitzgerald River National Park

The Fitzgerald River National Park, between Bremer Bay and Hopetoun, is  internationally recognised by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Reserve, is one of Australia's largest and most botanically significant Parks with beautiful wildflowers to be found all year round. About 1.784 plant species have been found so far, 75 found nowhere else, for example the Hakea Victoria or the Qualup Bell

A true wilderness - environmentally friendly solar powered

 

 

The Park is blessed with a magnificent scenery, mountain ranges, red cliffs, rivers, inlets and the incredible white sanded beaches with the crystal clear azure blue waters of the southern ocean.

 

You can't stay closer to the famous beach of Point Ann, one of the two places ( the other is Head of the Bight) along Australias coast where Southern Right Whales come to calve during their winter migration. It is simply the best spot for whale watching in WA ( Western Australia )

Also more kind of animals live in this National Park than in any other reserve in South-West Australia, with the 184 bird species found here, including rare species like the Hooded Plower, Western Bristlebird and the Ground Parrot.

 

The heritage listed Quaalup Homestead built 1858 adds a special atmosphere to this place and give guests an impression of the early settlement days. Guests are welcome to relax in front of the fireplace, read or meet fellow travellers.

 

Guests can enjoy nature walks with views to West Mount Barren and many species of wildflowers, wake up to the bird calls, dream away under star studded skies and explore the Parks attractions with comfortable distances.
