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.

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

Cape To Cape 2012

April 2012 by Lesley W

Having now completed the Cape to Cape journey, a long-time dream of mine, gave me such appreciation for our beautiful landscape, rugged coastline and magnificent oceans that demand our respect. Being given the means and support to do this, at times, challenging walk by Adventurous Women to fulfill this rewarding experience makes me feel so privileged. Sharing the week with such a lovely like-minded group of women up for the challenge was uplifting as we endeavoured, no matter our age, to complete this renowned track.

I enjoyed all parts of the Cape to Cape. The accomodation was basic but a lot better than camping out. The combination of Sue Hile & Emily & Simon was special. Thanks for the amazing walk.

I have just been a part of another awesome trip with Adventurous Women and, once again, am better for it! There were more "firsts" for me - quad biking, catching kounaks, eating kounaks, jet-skiing to name a few. I have changed, as I do every time I go on an AW adventure, and have formed more friendships with other women just like me - adventurous, smart, sassy, funny, caring, wanting to enjoy life more! A huge thank you and hugs to Sue for the work she did to get this trip going and for the massive amount of work she did each day to ensure our enjoyment!
