Queelup (place of the rock sheoak) is the Aboriginal Noongar name for this pale grey quartzite peak at the western end of the iconic Barrens Range. A walk to the ridgeline midway up the northern slope or to the summit is rewarded with sweeping views of the park and coast. The view takes in Gordon Inlet, Trigelow Beach, Point Ann and the distant outline of the central Barrens - Mid Mount Barren and Thumb Peak. On a clear day the Stirling Range (over 100km to the west) may be visible.
The peak and rolling plains below are blanketed in a diversity of plants that will delight nature lovers. Sixty-two plant species are found only in Fitzgerald River National Park, with a further 48 species more or less confined to the park. These include the Barrens regelia (Regelia velutina) and Barrens clawflower (Calothamnus validus), which grow only on the quartzite ridges and peaks of the Barrens Range. On the approach to West Mount Barren you will also discover the exquisite Quaalup bell (Pimelia physodes) and the Royal hakea (Hakea victoria), the park’s most famous and certainly most striking plant.

We love to hear from people who've been on our Western Australian trails, so it would be most appreciated it if you wanted to leave a review.
Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
