Fitzgerald River National Park

Unique, Special, Diverse 

Covering 330,000 hectares the Fitzgerald River National Park is one of the largest most botanically significant National parks in Australia

The park covers 0.2% of Western Australia's land surface but has more than 20% of WA’s plant species. Sixty five plants grow here and no where else in the world.

It contains more than 1,800 known plant species — more than all the plants found in the United Kingdom!

Home to 22 mammal, 41 reptile, 12 frog and over 200 bird species including the endangered ground parrot.

$40 million dollar renovations

The iconic park has been closed for a number of years to undergo an improvement project and stage one opened July 2012.

State and Federal Government funded the Improvement Project (FRNPIP) has made big improvements to facilities and access.

Sealed roads, new campsites, toilets, signage and coastal walk trails will give more people access to this world-class national park.
