Join us for a moderately strenuous hike, with Jarrah forest and river scenery as a stunning backdrop.  The highlight of this walk is the impressive "King Jarrah”, a 250 year old jarrah tree!

The King Jarrah trail traces the former transportation routes of the once vibrant timber industry. The much prized hard woods of Jarrah, Marri and Blackbutt saw a proliferation of timber towns in the late nineteenth century and were an important source of employment for the early pioneers.

Grade 4 - Experienced Bushwalkers

Gradient & Trail Quality - Steep section (western side of the trail), rough track with many obstacles and limited signage

Meeting Point - We will leave Blue Wren Cafe in Dwellingup at 9.00am, so meet here at 8.45am, or earlier if you wish to grab a cuppa & breakfast - (we'll leave some cars here and car-pool to the beginning of the trail)

Sea Kayaking at Ninagloo Reef

9 June 2011 by Glennie M

In 2010, I joined Adventurous Women on its first ‘Sea Kayaking at Ninagloo Reef’ Event even though I had never tried sea kayaking before. I was amazed at how peaceful it was whilst kayaking out on the reef and saw lots of turtles. Drift snorkelling over the reef at Turquoise Bay was incredible and since we wore life jackets, even the inexperienced snorkeller felt completely at ease. I count myself lucky to have shared in this awesome camping trip with so many friendly fun loving ladies from which I have forged some wonderful friendships.
