A favourite among birdwatchers, this signposted track starts via Warrabin Street trail, winding through at times tough terrain, yet rewarding you with glimpses of kingfishers and honeyeaters along the way. You could try to time your walk to coincide with the spring wildflower season; when the banksia, grevillea and hakea erupt with vibrant colours and scent.
