Starting from Rotary Park on Bussell Highway, Margaret River, this walk takes you to 10 Mile Brook Dam and back via the 10 Mile Brook Trail. This is a pleasant 15km return walk along a shared-use trail that leads to 10 Mile Brook Dam. Mile Brook Dam got its name from the small brook that was dammed in the 1990s to supply the Margaret River and surrounding settlements with water. The walk starts at Rotary Park near 'Old Kate', a preserved steam engine at the northern edge of Margaret River. The trail follows one of the many old timber tramways in the area, meandering alongside the river with some wonderful views and scenery along the way. Keep a lookout out for the White-breasted Robin, Golden Whistler and other birds along the trail. This is also a great spot for seeing beautiful wildflowers in Spring. Upon reaching the dam, there's a nice picnic stop at Rusden Picnic Site before following the river back to Rotary Park. The picnic site has toilets, barbeque facilities and picnic tables. This is a moderately easy trail, suitable for most ages. The trail is a combination of compacted earth and coarse gravel, with a flat surface and little elevation change. The path is suitable for bicycles, prams, and possibly also for wheelchair users with assistance. There are summer and winter routes, so be sure to take the winter route during the wet months as the summer route gets very wet underfoot. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Badjirrijirra Walk Trail
6.6 km
Circuit

Walk
2 h to 3 h

Starting from the Thomas Carter Lookout car park off Charles Knife Road, Cape Range National Park, this walk takes you on a circuit past the Shothole Lookout via the Badjirrijirra Trail. The Thomas Carter Lookout is the start and end of the Badjirrijirra Trail, a moderately difficult loop that traverses the top of Cape Range. Starting high in the range, the trail winds through a largely barren landscape of rocky gullies, small gorges and open spinifex bushland, leading to spectacular views down into the epic Shothole Canyon. There is a clear trailhead at the start of the walk, with waypoint poles and signs at trail junctions. The walk is mostly along a gently undulating terrain, with some steep ascents and descents. The trail has some rough, uneven surfaces and there is no shade along the way, requiring a moderate to high level of fitness. The conditions of Cape Range are harsh, with temperatures often soaring over 40°C in summer. Hiking isn't advised between December and March due to extreme heat and limited resources within the park, so either avoid hiking at those times of the year or start out very early in the day. Hikers are advised to take caution when exploring, wear suitable footwear and clothing, carry plenty of water and notify a friend or park ranger before leaving. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the Bibra Lake Reserve Carpark on Progress Drive, Bibra Lake, this walk takes you on a circuit around the perimeter of Bibra Lake. Bibra Lake Reserve is a great place for a range of outdoor activities, as there is a 6km cycle and walking path around the whole lake, with clear markings all the way around. The reserve has a thriving population of ducks, swamp hens, swans and many other birds. On the western side of the lake, a bird hide on a floating pontoon provides great bird watching opportunities in a tranquil setting. There is also a short jetty to walk along, which has nice views over the lake. Shaded picnic areas, barbecues, toilets and change rooms are available for those wanting to spend more time here. Drinking fountains and toilets can be found on both sides of the lake. There's a great adventure playground for the children, with features and designs that draw on local wildlife, fauna and aboriginal heritage. There is also a food van parked near the playground selling various cuisines, drinks, ice cream and coffee. The cement path is suitable for wheelchairs and prams due to it having mild slopes rather than steps. All of the facilities have been designed to be fully accessible to people with a disability. Dogs on a lead are welcome in the reserve, but are not permitted inside the fenced area of the playground. Keep an eye out for your children and pets at all times, as some sections of the track are next to the road. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the car park off Braunton Street, Bicton, this walk takes you along the Swan River past Bicton Baths and the Point Walter Sandbar. Bicton Baths is biologically quite diverse, and there are many marine animals and plants that reside here. The water here is crystal clear, so it's a beautiful spot for a swim and a picnic, and a great alternative to a day at the beach. Facilities at the adjacent park include barbecues, public toilets and a playground. You can walk along the river for most of the way, and after passing by Blackwall Reach, the foreshore is all yours. Don't forget to check out the top of Blackwall Reach though, as this is a favourite spot for adventurous people to jump off into the river. Once you reach Point Walter, you can walk out on the sandbar if the tide is low. The sandbar extends about 1 kilometre into the river and is a popular fishing spot. Be aware that parts of the sandbar are often submerged, and the drop into the water where boats cross and the bank ends can be quite deep. There's a café located on the Point Walter foreshore where you can enjoy a meal or beverage overlooking the river, before heading back the same way. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the Toodyay Caravan Park on Railway Road, Toodyay, this walk leads to Nardie Cemetery and back via the Bilya Walk Track. The Bilya Walk Track is a project by the "Toodyay Friends of the River" promoting the Avon River's cultural, heritage and environmental values. The marked and signposted track extends for about 6.9 kilometres from the Toodyay Caravan Park to Nardie Cemetery, providing opportunities to admire the town site's historic buildings. There is a grand array of birdlife and scenic vistas of the Avon River, and the diverse range of habitats provide for an exquisite range of wildflowers with some unique species. The John Masters Bird Hide, situated at Red Banks Pool, Lloyd Reserve, attracts many bird watchers, and walkers often pause to admire its design, peer through its windows to the river and read the informative posters depicting some of the birdlife in the area. Picnic facilities and seating have been installed along the track, providing excellent viewpoints to admire the Avon River. Extracts Weir and Millards Pool is quite close to the track. People usually watch the yearly Avon Descent from here. The track ends at the Nardie Cemetery, where most of the early settlers of Toodyay were buried.

Walk
3 h 15 min to 4 h 30 min

Starting from the Bluff Knoll Car park at the end of Bluff Knoll Road, Stirling Range National Park, this walk takes you to the summit of Bluff Knoll and back. The Bluff Knoll hike starts at a large interpretive shelter near the car park, and the path from there is easy to follow. The trail is steep in places but well marked and maintained throughout, with steps in place for much of the early steep inclines. Once you reach the rocky plateau that forms the peak of Bluff Knoll, you'll be rewarded with spectacular views over the surrounding Stirling Ranges and even as far south as Porongurup National Park. Bluff Knoll is continually surrounded by a dense layer of mist that swirls around the summit as the wind pushes it between the gullies and the rocks. Make sure to bring warm clothing, as it can get very cold at the summit. Mountain mists, wind chill, and rain can occur on the mountains at any time, and there are even snowfalls most winters on the peaks. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Walk
1 h 30 min to 2 h

Starting from the Lake Argyle Resort on Lake Argyle Road, Lake Argyle, this walk takes you to the Bluff Lookout and back via the Bluff Walk Trail. Lake Argyle is a freshwater lake set amidst a gorgeous hilly landscape. Filled with wildlife and colourful flora, this place is a safe haven for many. It's stunningly picturesque, as the reddish cliffs are sharply cut by the dark blue of the water from below and the light blue of the sky above. There are multiple bushwalks starting near the resort that allow you to explore the fauna and history of the region. One of them is the Bluff Walk Trail, which takes you around the cove to the 'Bluff', an excellent lookout over the lake and the resort. There's a lot to see along the way, and once you get to the lookout, the view is amazing. Look out for the interesting wildlife you may see in the area, including birds, marsupials, reptiles, insects and maybe even an echidna. There is very little shade on this walk, so it's best to walk in the early morning to beat the heat. Long trousers are recommended as the spinifex grass can be scratchy against your legs. The trail is well signposted, so there's very little chance of getting lost. Maps are provided by reception when you check-in, and the staff are happy to answer any questions. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the carpark on Montreal Street, Fremantle, this walk takes you on a short circuit within Booyeembara Park. Booyeembara Park is a gorgeous park that blends landscaping with environmental restoration. 'Booyeembara' is a local Aboriginal word which means 'of the limestone hills.' Years of excavation has transformed the area into a very different landscape. The land, which was once a quarry and a tip, has been reborn as sixteen hectares of public open space. The park has plenty of open space, bushland, walking trails and a central man-made lake. Located within the park is a decent sized playground, a skate park and an installation of exercise equipment. There are also a couple of BBQs, but no picnic tables or shelters. Toilets are situated close to the playground up a steep embankment, next to the carpark. Entry is via one of several paths down to the paved circuit that forms the basis of the park. Just around the corner is a path leading to a jetty sitting on the upper lake. The trail loops around the upper lake and then makes its way back down to the lower lake. Booyeembara Park has plenty to offer, despite this loop being just over a kilometre. Any fitness fanatic would love the well-maintained paths and the exercise equipment on the western edge. For those that are after some peace, the idyllic setting of the lake is a very relaxing place to be. There are a few quiet spots around the lake to sit down and enjoy the scenery, or just relax in the shade reading a book. There is also the option of dirt paths that extend past the upper lake for those that want to add some extra length to their walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the car park opposite Burns Beach Cafe at the end of Ocean Parade, Burns Beach, this walk takes you past Iluka Foreshore Reserve and the Ocean Reef Boat Harbour, to Mullaloo Beach and back. From Burns Beach, a multi-use pathway takes you through the dunes and along the rocky cliffs of Perth's coastline. There are several small beaches, lookouts, parks, picnic areas, and rest stops along the way. Keep an eye out for rare bird species, sea lions, dolphins and rays and many more animals. Interpretive signs along the way provide insights into the native flora, fauna and history of the area. This walk can either be fully completed in a day or divided into smaller sections. Head south from Burns Beach towards Iluka Foreshore Park. If you prefer to walk or cycle further, a round trip to Ocean Reef Marina or even Mullaloo Beach will certainly give you a challenge. The multi-use pathway is popular with walkers, joggers and cyclists, so it's important to keep left and be aware of any overtaking bicycles. The gradient is a little hilly, but easy enough if you take it at your own pace. Mornings are a great time to walk here, before the sea breeze comes in, although an evening walk can be rewarded with a beautiful sunset. Walk the coastal path, relax on the white sand beaches, barbecue in the grassed parks, or just sit atop the limestone cliffs and enjoy a spectacular Indian Ocean sunset. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the Calamunnda Camel Farm on Paulls Valley Road, Paulls Valley, this walk leads to Hewett's Hill Hut and back via the Bibbulmun Track. This is a fantastic 5km beginner-friendly adventure along the iconic Bibbulmun Track, one of the world's great long distance walk trails, stretching 1000km through the heart of the scenic South West of Western Australia. This section of the Bibbulmun Track winds through the towering tuart forests and magnificent jarrah trees of Beelu National Park, with beautiful birdlife and abundant native wildlife to be seen along the way. The sheer amount of wildflowers in the park makes the environment feel lively, and orchids play a big part in that. The Calamunnda Camel Farm is very popular on weekends, with many walkers stopping in for a coffee and a snack before or after setting out for a day of adventure. The farm also offers camel rides and other attractions to the general public. You'll make it to Hewet's Hill shortly after the farm. It is named after Peter Hewett, a man that was vital in getting the Bibbulmun Track built in the early days. Set up on a hill, the campsite has a lovely outlook over a gully in jarrah forest, and facilities include a three-sided timber shelter, long drop toilet, picnic tables and a rainwater tank that usually has water. If you're planning on staying overnight then be sure to bring a tent, as this is a very popular campsite given its easy access and short distance from various access points. This is an easy walk along a relatively flat trail with a slight incline on the return walk, suitable for beginners and families with kids. The trail is well signed, with the yellow triangular Waugal markers providing very clear directional information. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Walk

Starting from the Python Pool car park off Roeburn-Wittenoom Road, Millstream-Chichester National Park, this walk takes you to the summit of Mount Herbert and back via the Camel Trail. Linking the stunning Python Pool to the lookout at Mount Herbert, this historic trail follows part of an old route used by cameleers to lead their camels to reliable water sources. The Camel Trail winds up the rugged basalt and sandstone escarpment of the Chichester Ranges through rolling spinifex covered hills and large termite mounds, passing McKenzie Spring before heading to the summit of Mount Herbert. There are a couple of benches along the way that allow you to stop for a rest and take in the view of the surrounding landscape. Most of the walk is fairly straightforward, but there are a few unclear moments when the trail's camel-emblazoned markers are helpful in confirming that you've taken the right path. Even in the more difficult section up to Mount Herbert, the Camel Trail is surprisingly gentle and makes for a perfect introduction to walking in the Australian Outback. Although the trail is relatively easy, walkers should take care as there are some natural obstacles, uneven surfaces and rocky sections. If you're not going to walk out & back, it may be a good idea to start from Mount Herbert. If you're planning on returning to your starting spot on the other hand, begin from Python Pool. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the Mount Henry Bridge Reserve car park off The Esplanade, Mount Pleasant, this walk takes you on a circuit around the Canning River between Mount Henry Bridge and Canning River Bridge. Canning River serves as a safe haven from the busyness and loudness of daily city life, without the need to leave the city. This satisfyingly short 7km loop is perfect for anyone looking for a change in scenery from the iconic Swan River. You'll have a distant view of the city, constant water views and a path you can't miss. You'll see plenty of locals ambling along these quiet paths, kids scooting about completely carefree, and the odd fisherman quietly dipping in the waters for a meal. Be sure to keep a lookout for the variety of birds and wildlife that call the Canning River home. The loop starts by crossing the Canning River along a walkway under Mount Henry Bridge. On the other side of the river, you'll come across a sandy reserve with a gravel path loop on the western side of Mount Henry Peninsula. It is well worth the deviation off the main path as it provides some good views of the river. The loop continues north along a path between the Canning River and the Kwinana Freeway. After about 3km, the path crosses the river via Canning Bridge, passing the Swan River Rowing Club. From Canning Bridge, the path is straddled by the quiet, mansion lined Esplanade and the Canning River. The loop continues south, passing Deep Water Point Reserve, a picturesque river edge location with grassy picnic areas under majestic trees, a boat ramp, a jetty and beach access. The iconic Deep Water Point Jetty provides some spectacular views of the Canning Rivers calm blue waters and the Perth skyline in the background. Facilities at the reserve include barbecues, picnic tables, benches, toilets and showers, a playground and a cafe. From Deep Water Point, the path continues for about 1.5km back to the Mount Henry Bridge Reserve to complete the loop. This is a fairly easy loop, suitable for all ages and fitness levels. The path is well maintained and consistently flat, making it great for walking, running and cycling, and easily accessible for wheelchairs and strollers. The path is popular and family-friendly, and the western side can get crowded on weekends. The eastern side is more shady and natural, although close to the highway in places. Keep an eye out for snakes, especially in the warmer months of the year. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the car park off Lucky Bay Road, Cape Le Grand, this walk lets you explore the western coasts of Cape Le Grand. You’ll be visiting Lucky Bay, Thistle Cove and Hellfire Bay. Besides the scenic beaches, you’ll have an option to visit Mount Le Grand as well. Embrace yourself for one of, if not the best coastal walk in Australia. Pristine white sand will warm your feet as you appreciate the vivid colours of the ocean. Crystal clear and welcoming waters combined with the panoramic views may make you take more breaks then you’ve planned to, so give yourself enough time to truly enjoy the trip. There's a campsite midway that can help you divide the walk in two days and make sure you experience everything you want to. Keep an eye out for sunbaking (Australian for sunbathe) kangaroos and join them if you’d like -- from a safe distance of course. Sections of the track may require you to do a bit of clambering over rocks. Depending on the time and conditions, waves can hit those rocks and make you feel like you’re on an even more epic journey. From its hidden coves to clifftop lookouts, Cape Le Grand is a great place to spend your day at.

Starting from the car park at the end of Point Peron Road, Peron, this walk takes you on a circuit around the coastline of Cape Peron. Cape Peron, known locally as Point Peron, is a coastal beauty and the headland at Rockingham Lakes Regional Park, just a few minutes drive from the city centre of Rockingham. The area is known for its protected sandy beaches, rugged limestone cliffs, offshore reefs and panoramic sea views, and is home to many different family-friendly trails. Cape Peron is surrounded by the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park, which is home to bottlenose dolphins, Australian sea lions, loggerhead turtles and a variety of birdlife, including penguins. The calm and clear waters are ideal for swimming, snorkelling, fishing and kayaking, while the shoreline makes for some very scenic walks. Plenty of coves, beaches and viewpoints are present, along with WW2 ruins. Enjoy the coastal beauty of Cape Peron on a walk along its shores, or take the plunge to explore some of the underwater features of the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park. This is a relatively short walk, but the panoramic ocean views you'll get from almost every possible angle may prolong the time you'll spend. More if you decide to explore all the coves and lookouts. The walk can be considered easy and is mostly wheelchair-friendly. Dogs are allowed, as long as they're kept on a leash. Along the mainland foreshore of the Shoalwater Islands Marine Park, there are water stations, toilets, barbecues, picnic tables and several locations to purchase provisions.

Starting from the car park off Beach Road, Carine, this walk takes you on a circuit around Carine Open Space, passing Little Carine Swamp and Big Carine Swamp. Carine Open Space is a great place to enjoy a bit of nature, get some off-leash activity with your dog, or meet with friends and family. There are plenty of wide-open spaces ringed by a network of walking and cycling paths. Some paths are paved while others are more natural, but they are all flat. This loop walk initially takes you alongside Beach Road towards Little Carine Swamp, winding around the wetland area. The path is closer to the road, but you can walk off-path on the grass. After passing the wetlands, the path leads through the middle of the park, passing a riding school where you can see the resident horses. From the riding school, a dirt pathway takes you through a woodland area with signage describing the different types of trees. When you emerge from the trees, the main path takes you around Big Carine Swamp, offering glimpses of the swamp through the dense vegetation. The path continues around the edge of the wetland area before emerging into more open grassland, leading to a picnic area with toilets, BBQ's and a large shaded playground. You can follow the path towards the skate park, or alternatively, continue around the perimeter to complete your loop walk. There's plenty of grassy open space to enjoy some exercise, even if you don't fancy a walk around the swamps. You can bring your dog to this park, provided they're on a leash and not let into the wetlands. Carine Open Space is always busy with people exercising, walking their dogs or enjoying the outdoor spaces. On weekends, it's the venue for the Carine Parkrun and the nearby playing fields can also make it very busy during sports seasons. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Castle Rock Granite Skywalk

Return

Walk
1 h 30 min to 2 h

Starting from the Castle Rock Carpark on Castle Rock Road, Porongurup, this walk takes you to the Granite Skywalk on the summit of Castle Rock. The Granite Skywalk is a suspended walkway that spirals around giant granite boulders, and is truly a marvel of engineering as it clings to a vertical rock face at the summit of Castle Rock. The 2km hike up from the Castle Rock picnic area passes through Jarrah, Marri and Karri forest and by Balancing Rock to reach the base of Castle Rock and the lower lookout. As you ascend the peak, you're likely to encounter some of the region's 78 species of birds and 700 flowering plants, including many rare and extraordinary orchids and lichen varieties. Reaching the upper lookout requires scrambling over rocks and climbing a 7 metre ladder. The last part of the climb, just before reaching the ladder to the Skywalk, involves a rugged climb through a rocky crevice. A series of grab handles bolted onto the granite adds another layer of fun to the experience. If you can manage the scramble, you'll be rewarded with spectacular views of the surrounding peaks of the Porongurups, the Stirling Range to the north, Mount Manypeaks to the south-east and the undulating farmland towards Albany and Mount Gardner. The hike to the Skywalk is a steep ascent along a rocky path with some obstacles, featuring more rock steps as the gradient becomes steeper. Sturdy walking shoes are recommended, as the trail has a decent amount of loose terrain and can become slippery when wet. The final climb requires some arm and leg strength, and an aptitude for heights. One of the most unique experiences in the South West, the Granite Skywalk is a great finish to a challenging hike. The steep hike through dense forest, the exhilarating climb up to the Granite Skywalk and the unparalleled views from the summit make this a very enjoyable and rewarding experience. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting behind the Craigie Leisure Centre off Whitfords Avenue, Craigie, this walk takes you on a circuit within the Quenda Reserve Enclosure in Craigie Bushland. Craigie Bushland is a major conservation area with several walking trails, perfect for a suburban self-guided nature walk. The bushland is well preserved and filled with the sounds of birds, making it easy to forget you are in the middle of suburbia. Quendas (southern brown bandicoots) are residents of the bush here. The area is fenced to protect the Quenda, and inside the enclosure are some amazing walk trails, sealed pathways and compacted limestone trails. The trails outside the fence are more sandy or gravelly. Throughout the reserve, you will find seating and signage with information about local flora and fauna. The trails are well signposted and are circular in nature, so you can enjoy a long walk around the reserve and back to your entry point. Dogs are prohibited within the Quenda Reserve Enclosure but are allowed on a leash outside the fenced area. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the Fortescue Falls Carpark on Dales Road, Karijini, this walk takes you on a circuit around Dales Gorge via the Gorge Rim Walk and Fortescue Falls Track. One of the most satisfying walks in Karijini National Park, this walk combines all the trails in Dales Gorge into a scenic loop. The first of many viewpoints is a short walk from the car park and shows off the views down towards Fortescue Falls. From there, the trail snakes its way along the edge of the gorge walls, providing spectacular views across the landscape to the distant hills. After passing the Dales Gorge Lookout, the trail descends steeply to a wide expanse at the bottom of the gorge, where you can take a short detour and visit the Circular Pool. The pool is not very large, but the massive amphitheatre-like space, lush green ferns and trickling water make it a truly magical spot. After visiting Circular Pool the trail widens, contracts, skirts and snakes its way through the gorge with plenty to see and photograph on the way to Fortescue Falls. Fed by a spring, Fortescue Falls is one of the few permanent waterfalls in the park, flowing even in drier years. As this place is in a spacious natural amphitheatre, you won't have problems finding a scenic place to sit. The trail continues past Fortescue Falls, crossing a series of stepping stones to reach the other side of the gorge's watercourse, where the trail forks off to either Fern Pool or up the stairs to the car park. One of the most beautiful pools in the park, Fern Pool features a small waterfall and a wooden deck platform that allows visitors easy access for swimming. From Fern Pool, the trail heads back towards Fortescue Falls and up the metal staircase towards the car park. As the longest gorge hike in Karijini, Dales Gorge is a true delight to explore thanks to the many different side trails and swimming spots, and the full loop experience provides excellent coverage of both the gorge rim and valley floor. The trail is well-marked and requires minor rock hopping and water crossings. Dales Gorge features a few seams of blue asbestos along its walls, and while it is safe in its unprocessed natural state, visitors are advised not to break off or touch any of these formations. Keep in mind that the gorges are at high risk for flash floods. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Desert View Walk Trail

Circuit

Walk
45 min to 1 h

Starting from the car park at the end of Pinnacles Drive, Nambung National Park, this walk takes you on a circuit through the Pinnacles Desert and past the Pinnacles View Lookout via the Desert View Walk Trail. This is one of the park's most popular trails because of the views and easy access to the Pinnacles Desert. From the main car park area, a concrete path leads to the start of the Desert View Walk Trail. The concrete path ends as it leaves the heathland, providing the first sight of the Pinnacles Desert. The trailhead is well signed, providing a map of the walk and some safety information. Comprised of naturally well-compacted sand, the trail is mostly flat with only a few gentle rises. An interesting aspect of this trail is that there is no set path. Instead, walkers can choose their own course between the marker posts placed at regular intervals and freely explore the otherworldly environment. The best time of the year to go is spring, with blooming wildflowers and cooler weather. Summer is very hot and dry. It is advisable to avoid visiting from December to March. Wear sunscreen, long sleeves and a hat to avoid sunstroke and sunburn, and carry enough drinking water. The trail crosses the vehicle track at various points (which is well marked with rocks), so watch out for cars. Please treat the Pinnacles with respect and never attempt to climb these fragile structures. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Walk
1 h 30 min to 2 h 30 min

Starting from the car park off Hamersley Drive, Fitzgerald River National Park, this walk takes you to the summit of East Mount Barren and back via the East Mount Barren Track. Towering over a landscape of rugged beauty, endless horizons and countless varieties of wildflowers, East Mount Barren is a fantastic little gem. The trail up East Mount Barren is a short but challenging climb through a series of different landscapes and spectacular views. The trail commences on a timber boardwalk that protects the recovering scrub. The gentle boardwalk ends at some point, and you're left with a kilometre-ish walk/scramble on quartzite and sandstone. Try to pause every once in a while to admire the scenery and the ancient rocks you're walking on. With its close proximity to both the coast and several notable mountainous features, there is no shortage of viewpoints to admire as you climb up. The climbing is broken up into stages and each section offers something unique. The first section requires you to clamber up a set of rocks. Then, you'll find a gap that lets you proceed to the second section, which is relatively flatter and more of an open area. The section of the path near the summit looks like a rock wall, however the path leads through clefts in the rock onto the third and final section. The narrow passage leading to the summit requires a tiny bit of scrambling but isn't overly challenging, and the breathtaking views from the summit are well worth the effort. Some parts of the track (especially near the start and the end) are slippery, rugged and steep. Also, keep an eye out for loose rocks. There are many unfenced cliffs here. Prickly shrubs can become annoying as well if not careful. Lastly, keep in mind that the temperature and the weather conditions change as you get higher, so come prepared. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Walk
1 h to 1 h 30 min

Starting from the Echidna Chasm car park off the Great Northern Highway, Purnululu National Park, this walk takes you past the Osmand Lookout, then into Echidna Chasm via the Echidna Chasm Trail. A little walk off the main track will take you to a lookout where you can get exceptional views of the Osmand Range. After visiting the lookout, you'll follow the dry creek bed that leads into Echidna Chasm. The start of the walk is hot and exposed, but soon you'll be in the cool shelter of the tall chasm, surrounded by towering walls of conglomerate rock with remarkable colour variations. Signs along the walk describe how the chasm was formed, and the boulders along the path let you have an idea about the origin of the Bungle Bungle Range. The walk gets more challenging towards the end of the chasm, requiring some scrambling over large boulders and climbing up ladders. Sturdy footwear is recommended as walking over the boulders can be tough on the ankles. Daytime temperatures can exceed 40°C, so be sure to bring plenty of drinking water, a hat and sunscreen. The best time of the day to visit Echidna Chasm is around noon when the sun is directly overhead. This is the only time when sunlight penetrates into the chasm, creating an amazing spectacle with light bouncing off the walls. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the car park at the end of Flinders Parade, Middleton Beach, this walk takes you along the Ellen Cove Boardwalk, then to the Port of Albany and back. Commencing at Ellen Cove, a gently sloping boardwalk climbs the hillside, providing incredible views of the King George Sound. The boardwalk transitions to a bitumen path wrapping around Mount Adelaide into Ataturk Channel, arriving finally at the port, where you can head into town or return the same way you came. There are many interesting features dotted along the way, including lookouts, historic buildings, old WWII army bunkers and monuments to past leaders and explorers. At certain times of the year, whales can be seen in the bay. The historic elements complement the absolutely stunning natural scenery, making this one of the best ways to experience the coastline of Albany and immerse yourself in its rich history. The multi-use pathway is a mixture of wooden boardwalk and bitumen path, equally enjoyable whether walking, jogging or cycling. It is also accessible for prams and wheelchair users with assistance. Dogs are permitted on the path only and must be kept on a leash at all times. Let us begin by acknowledging the Minang/Menang Noongar people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the Emma Gorge Resort at the top of Emma Gorge Road, El Questro Wilderness Park, this walk takes you into Emma Gorge, to a stunning waterfall and back via the Emma Gorge Walk Trail. Head into the hilly Cockburn Ranges via the Emma Gorge Walk Trail, either by yourself or with the help of the local guides. This picturesque gorge walk traverses rocky terrain under trees that give some shade, culminating during a beautiful oasis within the middle of the dry and dusty El Questro Wilderness Park. At the highest point of the walk, you'll be rewarded with two natural pools of crystal clear water. The other is harder to succeed in, but is fed by a spectacular waterfall and features a natural thermal spring in one corner. Relax by the shady edge of the waterhole, enjoy a refreshing swim and inspect to hunt out the recent spring before heading back. This is often quite a challenging walk, with a good little bit of walking along the dry streambed, some rock scrambling, water crossings and a couple of steep inclines. The trail is well marked, but the surface is extremely rocky and uneven, requiring walkers to tread carefully and have a cheap level of fitness. make sure you take enough water, sturdy walking shoes, a hat and sunscreen. A Visitor Permit is required to travel to Emma Gorge and should be purchased at the start of the walk. there's no camping at Emma Gorge, but there is a stunning resort with tented cabins, a restaurant and a swimming pool.

Walk
1 h to 2 h

Starting from the car park at the end of Frenchman Peak Road, Cape Le Grand, this walk leads to the summit of Frenchman Peak and back via the Frenchman Peak Trail. In the southwest corner of Cape Le Grand National Park, massive rocky outcrops of granite and gneiss form an impressive chain of peaks including Mount Le Grand (345m), Frenchman Peak (262m) and Mississippi Hill (180m). From the car park, the trail skirts around Frenchman Peak through the surrounding heathlands, at one point crossing a wooden bridge over an ephemeral creek. After passing a boardwalk section, the trail continues over granite terrain, initially following low outcrops of only gentle steepness. The route is guided by a series of markers bolted into the terrain. Passing through a small pocket of heathlands, the steepness of the trail increases dramatically. However, natural indentations in the rock create an informal series of steps that make it slightly easier to walk up. Just below the summit is an interesting cave. The said cave is remarkably large and features a massive cairn within it, and the coastline views are framed perfectly by the cave roof. After passing the cave, the final stretch up to the summit is a moderate ascent with some easy scrambling. From the summit, walkers are rewarded with spectacular 360° views of the park, the entire coastline from Rossiter Bay to Le Grand Beach, and the islands in the Recherche Archipelago. The return journey follows the same route as it does heading up. Trekking poles may help with balance on the way back down the granite peak. The trail consists of gravel paths, granite and boardwalks. This walk is not recommended in wet or windy weather as the rock can become extremely slippery. Warm clothes are recommended if it's a cold day because the summit can be quite windy, especially during the winter months. The achievable challenge of climbing up the granite slope, the massive cave and the spectacular panoramic views of the Cape to Grand coastline make this an excellent short mountain walk in Cape Le Grand National Park. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
