The region encompasses the three towns of Hopetoun, Ravensthorpe and Munglinup. Two thirds of the Ravensthorpe Shire is natural bushland, made up of the Fitzgerald River National Park and the Ravensthorpe Range and reserves, all of which are rich in geology and native flora and fauna, including many rare species unique to the area. The coastal scenery of Hopetoun and Munglinup is spectacular, grand headlands and pristine beaches unique to the southeast of Western Australia provide the area with a wealth of natural beauty. The diverse landscape provides a variation of rocks and soil nutrients to promote a wide variety of plants; and the region is reputed to have more plants for its size than any other similarly sized area in the world! In June 2017, the Fitzgerald River National Park retained international significance as a UNESCO approved Biosphere Reserve and provides stretches of coast and unspoiled wilderness. After exploring the natural surrounds, visitors can enjoy the relaxed pace of Ravensthorpe, Munglinup and Hopetoun. A popular self drive route to undertake is the Fitzgerald Coast Loop. Start in Ravensthorpe, travel down to Hopetoun and then to Munglinup via the sealed Jerdacuttup Road. Travelling from Hopetoun to Esperance is 188km via Jerdacuttup Road, a good day trip option.
