Hike Summary

This is a short and easy walk which follows part of the original rabbit proof fence. It offers superb views over Point Charles Bay and is an excellent whale watching route in season.

Located in Fitzgerald National Park, Point Ann marked the start of the rabbit proof fence and there is a section of the fence still to be seen on this trail. Point Ann was also the site of mallet loading onto long boats in the 1920's.   During winter southern right and humpback whales may be spotted in the bay.   This is an easy walk on a defined path, with information boaRoads along the route. Point Ann Picnic Area offers BBQ's, large covered areas and seating for groups on platforms for whalewatching.  

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.
