Welcome to Fitzgerald Coast

 2017-18 Brochure


The Fitzgerald Coast is an undiscovered wilderness where farming and agriculture meets the pristine coast with white sand that squeaks.

The Fitzgerald Coast is situated on the south coast of Western Australia, encompassing the three town centres of Munglinup, Hopetoun, Ravensthorpe and the small farming community of Jerdacuttup. The region is located on the South Coast Highway 5 hours from Perth, two hours from Esperance and just 2.5 hours East of Albany.

It is a gateway to the Fitzgerald River National Park one of the most botanically significant parks in Australia. Ancient mountain ranges, rocky hills, rugged river valleys, estuaries and large inlets provide the area with a wealth of natural beauty.

The coastal scenery of Hopetoun and Munglinup is spectacular.  The recently updated foreshore at Hopetoun is perfect for kids, walking distance to McCulloch park with the very popular jumping pillow! Snorkeling, diving and kayaking at one of the secluded bays or just go strolling at one of the endless white sandy beaches are a favourite passed time for locals.

Experience the history Ravensthorpe has to offer, or go 4WD  or trail bike riding on the famous Ravensthorpe Ranges surrounding the town while discovering a variety of Wildflowers significant to the area (especially in spring).

The Fitzgerald Coast has  some of the most magnificent and accessible white sandy beaches in Australia, beach front camping, world class fishing and diving, 4WD and hiking, there is something for everyone on the Fitzgerald Coast from adventurer to holiday maker.

  1. What time of year is the best time to visit?

    What local hotel can a couple/family have best accommodation for several nights and any specials?


    • The Fitzgerald Coast region is great to visit at any time of year. Summer sees the bustle of the Hopetoun Festival in January and long days at one of the many beaches. Autumn is when the weather starts to cool, the farms are preparing for seeding and is a great time to explore the Fitzgerald River National Park to climb Mount Barren, take one of the many walking trails, go 4WDing plus a host of other activities. Easter is usually a very busy time here with the Hopetoun Fishing Competition and a great chance for a family catch up. Winter usually has mild sunny days and the Southern Right whales start making their way in to the area from June to September/October. Canola fields start to carpet the undulating landscape in a blanket of yellow. Spring sees the area explode with wildflowers, the Ravensthorpe Wildflower Show is held for two weeks in September. Any time of year is a good time to explore the Fitzgerald Coast.
