Crooked Brook Forest Wildflower Walk
On the last day of winter the famous wildflowers are already starting to bloom in Western Australia.
The wildflowers are spectacular. Some are smaller than a finger and so delicate.
At Crooked Brook Forest there are several great walks around the area that showcase these beautiful blossoms.
The Forest Path circuit is wheelchair accessible and an easy 600 metre circuit. It meanders around a billabong, with lots of seating, two picnic areas and a gas bbq.
For those a bit more adventurous, the Jarrah Walk Circuit is also an easy 1.5 km walk. It takes you past the billabong and through the Jarrah forest.
The Wildflower circuit is 3kms long and highlights a magnificent view over Bunbury.
If you have 3 hours available, the 10km Marri walk has views over the Ferguson Hills, through the forest, around pine trees and farmlands.
Crooked Brook Forest is a Jarrah forest, 25kms from Bunbury, off Crooked Brook Road, and a 2 hour drive from Perth. It is promoted as a “forest for all people” and is accessible by able, disabled and elderly people. It is well worth the drive to come and visit this lovely forest venue, bring a bbq or picnic and spend the day amongst nature.
