About Hamersley Inlet Trail, Fitzgerald River NP
The Hamersley Inlet Trail takes walkers along the banks of a winding valley carved through the hard schist and quartzite rock of the coastal headlands and ranges. Fringed by the eucalypt woodlands and paperbark thickets, while nearby peaks of the Whoogarup Range are clearly visible on the horizon.
The Inlet stretches about seven kilometres from the sandbar at its mouth, to a rock bar in the narrow river valley at its northern end. You will start your walk at the Hamersley Inlet picnic area where you could put your feet up and enjoy a leisurely kayak on the water. In addition there are barbeque facilities and picnic benches.
The trail can act alone as a return trip along the inlet to Hamersley Beach or can be used as path to access the longer Hakea Walk Trail that takes you along the coast of the Fitzgerald River National Park.
