Default Fitzgerald River National Park

I should be in Fitz today. The rain has been extrodinary. The road was cut at Gnowanerup and i had o take a wet, slushy 50km detour. Only to get just Ongerup and the road is closed again. Got bogged turning around and had to get the paj and ulti towed out. Made a beeline for the caravan park and spent $40 to sleep in the self contained house. Will try for Fitz tomorrow. Rain, thunder and lightning hasnt let up

Off to another great start by the sounds of it! Have a great trip you lucky bugger. I'm dying to get back down that way and explore the park more.

Good luck Shane. I'll be back down that way on Friday, but in a different part of the park. Rapid plan changes. Destination: Bremer Bay. Thought it was the best place to give my wife and son a taste of what I've just seen. Hope the worst of the weather has passed - for you and me.

Best to check if the np is still open, it was closed on us once after rain and the concern of spreading dieback into the park.

Jesus! They sure have had some rain! Might be time to bail and head elsewhere?
Although it's all Bitumen coming from Hopetoun way into Hammersly campground and if you have the Yaks with you, at least you have a nice inlet for a paddle around.
