Southern Right WhalesRelax 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

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 Australia's 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 200 bird species found here, including rare species like the Hooded Plover, Western Bristlebird and the elusive Western  Ground Parrot
