The Jabitj Trail, meaning running water in the Noongar language, is a delightful trail that follows the Collie River between Wellington Dam and Honeymoon Pool offering views of the rapids and pools along the way - you may even like to go for a refreshing dip!

For those who don’t wish to walk, pack up at your leisure and check out of the campgrounds by 10.00am.

11.00am - or thereabouts, we finish the walk at Honeymoon Pool where we’d left some of the vehicles and drive a short distance back to The Kiosk. Once we’re all back there, it’s time to say our goodbyes and head for home, or grab a cuppa and a bite to eat at The Kiosk before you do so (optional).
