Albany to Hopetoun via Ravensthorpe
300km east of Albany, about halfway to Esperance, lies Hopetoun. A town of scientific importance, its rocks hold information and data dating back to Australia's split from Antarctica. It's also the ideal point from which to explore the Fitzgerald River National Park. Along the road, you'll pass Two People's Bay, a turquoise blue beach surrounded by huge granite boulders and white sand, and The Stirling Range National Park, home to Bluff Knoll, the highest mountain peak in the south of Western Australia.
