This a moderately easy 6km walk through heathland to a hill 262 metres above sea level, offering views to Culham Inlet and the Eyre Range. Black gloved wallabies may be spotted and the wildflowers change throughout the year.
The hike is 6km return and is accessed from a four wheel drive track that is usually accessible to two wheel drives. Honeyeaters are active in the heathland shrubs and there is a grove of weeping gums leading to the summit. The walk is very exposed and is not suitable for hot weather.
About the region
Fitzgerald River National Park is one the largest and most botanically significant national parks in Australia. Within the park are found nearly 20 percent of Western Australia’s flora species, many of which occur only within its boundaries. The park features a tantalising variety of landscapes to explore from rolling plains, colourful breakaways, rugged peaks and headlands to stunning bays and inlets. During winter, southern right whales shelter close to shore with their newborn calves.
