Trek the marvellous Fitzgerald Coast

Trek the marvellous Fitzgerald Coast

Venture down to the south of Western Australia, where warm days stretch on and life slows down to a leisurely rhythm. Enjoy some exercise in a place that simply oozes with sunny vibes.

The Fitzgerald River National Park is the perfect backdrop for exploring secluded bays by kayak, snorkel or flipper. Recent upgrades have seen the park  fitted with idyllic picnic areas and walking tracks, and beachfront camping experiences will leave you begging for a longer stay.

Next on your list is Albany, located at the southern tip of Western Australia, which is home to some of Australia’s best beaches and summer attractions. Swim in the shade of Ellen Cove before enjoying the astounding views at the Gap and National Bridge in the Torndirrup National Park. Then, make your way into town to try Albany’s famed seafood, wines and malt whisky – health is all about balance!

Continue to Esperance, which rests along the southern coast of Australia’s Golden Outback and has more than 100 offshore islands to explore. With sights to match even the wildest of imaginations, the enthralling bright pink of Lake Millier on Middle Island will astound you. There’s hardly a better setting for a morning jog.

To continue the trend of unbelievable colours, the sand of Esperance beaches is a heavenly white.The shores of these beaches, along with the especially notable Twilight and Lucky bays, are best seen from the 38-kilometre Great Ocean Drive. Discover the area via its many walking trails before settling down in one of its cosy country pubs, with crisp craft brews and colourful characters.
