- Sunnyside Reserve | TOTAL TRAILS
Out of gallery SUNNYSIDE RESERVE Sunnyside is situated adjacent to the Blackwood River 12.5km out of Bridgetown along Tweed Rd. The Carbannup Brook flows from the south and meets the Blackwood River within the reserve, which initially was used as a stock watering point. It was vested with the Shire of Bridgetown -Greenbushes in 1971 for recreational purposes. Sunnyside Hall was built in 1921 and was first used for monthly dances. The hall and oval are still used for many local activities including the annual Sunnyside New Year's Day cricket game. Sunnyside has healthy vegetation and a variety of plants, which provide valuable habitat for wildlife. An initial survey has identified 120 species, which include various native buttercups, Running Postman and Native Wisteria, as well as Red and Green Kangaroo Paws. The vegetation is predominantly Jarrah-Marri open woodland with an understory of wattle, pea scrub and native grasses. A number of plants were used by Aboriginal people as food, including the small sweet fleshy fruit of Australian Bluebells, Bardi grubs, which live in the trunks of dying trees and fruits of the Zamia, which requires a lengthy period of treatment to be made edible.

- THE BIBBULMUN TRACK
Out of gallery THE BIBBULMUN TRACK BALINGUP | MANJIMUP | PEMBERTON | NORTHCLIFFE | WALPOLE The Bibbulmun Track is one of the world’s great long distance walk trails, stretching 1000km from Kalamunda in the Perth Hills, to Albany on the south coast, winding through the heart of the scenic South West of Western Australia. The Track is for walkers only and is signposted with yellow triangular markers symbolising the Waugal, the rainbow serpent of the Aboriginal Dreaming. Trail markers are spaced up to 500m apart. They are more frequent when there is an intersection with other tracks or when the Track takes a turn. For more information about the Nyoongar culture please see the various Along the Track pages and visit Nyoongar Knowledge . Nyoongar people are known and acknowledged as the traditional owners and custodians of the land and waters over which the Bibbulmun Track passes. Nyoongar people have a deep spiritual, emotional, social and physical connection to “country” (Boodja). Nyoongar people ask you to please respect the Boodja when you walk the Bibbulmun Track to ensure its natural and cultural values are preserved for all future generations. The Track takes walkers through towering karri and tingle forests, down mist-shrouded valleys, over giant granite boulders and along breathtaking coastal heathlands. It passes through many of the most beautiful national parks of the south west forests and coastline. The Bibbulmun Track offers a wide range of experiences, from a gentle stroll to enjoy the peace and beauty of the natural environment, to an epic eight week adventure. Those that walk every step of the way can be registered as end-to-enders . You can make it a wilderness experience by camping out , you can join a guided group , a tour , or you can do it in comfort by staying in the towns along the Track and enjoying day walks in the area. The Track passes through Dwellingup, Collie, Balingup, Donnelly River Village, Pemberton, Northcliffe, Walpole, Peaceful Bay and Denmark. The Bibbulmun Track is essentially a linear walk; you will need to do some planning if you don't want to retrace your steps. This might involve arranging a car shuffle, swapping keys as two groups meet at a campsite, or having someone drop you off and collect you at the other end. Many of the Track Towns are accessible by public transport. See the Section by Section Guide for more details on getting there. WEBSITE & MAP

FAMILY INFORMATION Warren Blackwood Stock Route was developed in discussion with local families who used the stock route to move cattle around the region, these are excerpts from their stories, their full stories are available at state libraries: ' ….. we had a shanty hut at the coast which was quite comfortable not really comfortable. It was just an open…tin roof and where we slept had a few weatherboards, slab-boards up against the wall with about a half-inch gap between them’ Anthony Egerton-Warburton Going to the coast was an annual trip for the droving families and many of them built huts along the route and on their land whether it was freehold or leasehold. Some huts were simple lean-to’s with bush poles and sheets of tin designed to shelter the drovers and their provisions from the rain. Others were more permanent with walls, chaff bag beds and a little galley for cooking. Some families built cattle yards and sunk wells in an effort to make life on the coast more comfortable. The Mottram family built a hut down near the Gardner River. ‘Well that was slab-walls and it had a tin roof on it. And our beds, they were slab beds too! So they weren’t very soft. But, you know, looking now, you’d say peoples wouldn’t sleep on those. But we didn’t think anything about it. We just… a few rushes on the top and there you’d sleep there like a log.’ Cliff Mottram. The huts along the droving routes were simpler and usually made from tin and these were used by anyone who needed them. ‘There were two or three other tin huts on the road by the yards which we camped in if it was very wet. Often it was better out of them. They sometimes had fleas in them. Those sort of things, Snakes’. Anthony Egerton-Warburton Old Stock Route Hut - Bev Mottram Previous Next

MUIR CAMP Out of gallery INFORMATION View Road Map LOCATION NEXT CAMP PREVIOUS CAMP FACILITIES Smeathers Road Egerton-Warburton - 29.7km Mottram Campsite - Shed Yards Toilets Picnic Table Fire Pit CAMP OTHER DETAILS Always Open Limited Telstra phone signal at campsite. Family Information The trips to the coast happened long before mobile communication and, once at the coast, the drovers were completely isolated. They had to be tough, self-sufficient and capable of dealing with any situation that arose. Snakes, dingoes, falls from horses and quicksand were just a few of the dangers that they had to contend with. Some families had arrangements with nearby landholders that, if a bonfire was lit in a particular place, it meant that they needed help. Sometimes there was no choice but to get back in the saddle and keep going. Not only did the drovers have to look after themselves, they had to ensure that their precious cattle and horses returned safely to their home farms. They had to be ever vigilant of what the animals grazed on as plants like heartleaf poison and zamia could make the animals very sick. One of the biggest problems for the drovers in the early years was coastie, a wasting disease that affected the cattle when they spent extended periods on the coast. The cattle would lose weight and condition, their hair would fall out and many died. In the late 1930s, it was discovered that coastie was caused by a lack of cobalt in their diet. Coastie could then be treated with a cobalt pellet that was put down the animal’s throat. It lodged in their gut and slowly released the cobalt into their digestive system. ‘the advent of using copper and cobalt was a wonderful situation. In fact, I ran the coast here with me cattle for five years and never lost a beast. Prior to that, we’d always lost two or three from coastie disease.’ Jim Muir Jeff and Blick in action - Muir Family Previous Next
- MUNDA BIDDI TRAIL
Out of gallery MUNDA BIDDI TRAIL DONNYBROOK | NANNUP | MANJIMUP | PEMBERTON | NORTHCLIFFE | WALPOLE Stretching over 1060km from Mundaring to Albany, in South-West Western Australia, the Munda Biddi Trail is an off-road cycling trail like no other. Every day on the Trail is different - ride amongst towering eucalypts and pristine ancient bushland, past rolling pastures and wind-shaped coastal ecosystems. Camp in purpose-built shelters, or stay in the trail towns along the way. Ride the the Trail for an hour, a day, overnight, or the ultimate Munda Biddi experience, the End to End The Munda Biddi Trail is a world-class, nature-based, off-road cycling experience. From Mundaring to Albany, the Trail traces a 1000km track through undeveloped natural habitat. Your experience on the Trail will be greatly enhanced with preparation, planning and some knowledge of the basic principles of cycling fitness, gear, technique and safety. You can find useful and important information on the Trip Planning pages. Riding the Trail can be exhilarating, but can also be difficult in some sections. The most essential element to enjoying your Trail experience is to plan a ride that is suitable for your fitness and skill level. While much of the Trail terrain is gently undulating, there are some challenging sections and cyclists should prepare for this. Be sure to start with small journeys and increase the kilometres as your fitness increases. The time it takes to complete each section will depend on your fitness, skill level and whether you are carrying camping gear. Unlike cycling and touring on sealed roads, cycling off-road is different because the trail surfaces vary. You will need to allow for more time when you plan your trip. As a guide, if you can usually ride 80km a day on sealed roads or bike paths, you should only aim to cycle 40-50km off-road. The Parks and Wildlife Services have developed free digital map files of the Munda Biddi Trail. It’s recommended to use these in conjunction with the hardcopy maps. Do not rely purely on any electronic equipment – batteries might go flat, the device may fail or break, and can be unreliable in areas of little to no network coverage. In addition, the digital maps do not include any trail diversions that may be constructed. Check the Parks and Wildlife website for any trail diversions, closures, prescribed burns and current trail conditions before and during your adventure. These realignments are developed for your safety. Each diversion will be marked and there will be signage placed at either end on the Trail. WEBSITE & MAP
- Bridgetown - In Town | TOTAL TRAILS
Out of gallery BRIDGETOWN - IN TOWN BRIDGETOWN HERITAGE WALK - 2KM Bridgetown was originally called Geegelup, probably taken from the local Aboriginal term for the fresh water crustaceans found in the local brook. The local tribe called these 'guglies' and incorporated them into their diet. Other people changed this term to 'gilgies'. The town was proclaimed on 9 June 1868 as Bridgetown. John Allnutt wrote to the colony's authorities requesting that the town be called Bridgetown because the ship Bridgetown loaded the town's wool at Bun bury and due to the bridge crossing the Blackwood River. This walk allows you to take a step back in time and view some of Bridgetown's heritage buildings, some dating back over 100 years. An information booklet with detailed descriptions of each location is available from the Bridgetown Visitor Centre. DOWNLOAD MAP OLD RECTORY TRAIL - 1.5KM The Old Rectory Trail runs approximately 1km to the west of the iconic Bridgetown timber bridge along the picturesque Blackwood River. This walk trail was originally used by the Anglican Parish Priests when the 'Old Rectory' was located at the end of the trail as the means of linking 'home' to 'work'. The historic (100 year old) St Paul's Anglican Church is located in the Bridgetown town site at the opposite end of the trail, across the bridge. The 'Old Rectory' is now privately owned property, so walkers cannot enter the Rectory itself, but instead can retrace their footsteps back along the trail or access a loop link and return to the timber bridge along the service road adjacent to the Brockman Highway. This affords the walker the opportunity to view the public art sculpture at the southern end of the Bridge. This piece of artwork symbolises the water drop - water being an element integral to environmental sustainability. This walk connects to the River Park. Caution should be taken during winter as the river can flood parts of the trail. DOWNLOAD MAP BLACKWOOD RIVE WALK - 5.7 - 6.2km The Blackwood River Walk features a unique boardwalk detour which runs through native bush and wetland areas. The walk trail traverses 3.1km along the picturesque Blackwood River and crosses the river over a unique suspension bridge which spans 8 meters across the waterway. The trail and boardwalk can be accessed from the family friendly River Park and at the bottom of Grey's Hill. Canoe and kayak hire is available (through the Bridgetown Caravan Park) with the equipment located at the end of the southern board walk. The full 8km loop provides entry point access and direction to the river from various starting points and passes through the historically listed residential areas of Bridgetown. The topography in Bridgetown can be quite steep, so there are some great 'heart starter' hills on this trail. The section of the trail that traverses bushland, along the river is slightly undulating with terrain not as steep as some of the residential sections of the trail. The trail is popular with local dog walkers, joggers and cyclists. You may also shre the trail with horse riders. DOWNLOAD MAP SOMME CREEK FITNESS TRAIL The Somme Creek Fitness Trail is an outdoor resistance training area which includes six stations of fitness equipment designed to target the whole body and get you into shape. Use them all or pick and choose. A description outlining correct use accompanies each piece of equipment. A 5-10 minute walk along the path is a great way to warm up and cool down after a workout. The fitness trail connects with the art trail to complete the loop at the Library car park. Always stand clear of fitness equipment when observing others. It is recommended that children under 12 years of age don't use the equipment without adult supervision. Somme Creek is a revegetated wetland area with native flora which attracts local fauna. This walk trail also provides access to the Bridgetown Library, Skate Park, Bridgetown Swimming Pool and Bridgetown Leisure Centre. DOWNLOAD MAP MASLIN RESERVE - 3km Maslin Reserve is 49 ha of bushland located just a short drive out of Bridgetown, along Peninsula Rd. The Reserve is surrounded by land cleared for housing and farming. The Reserve was created in 1923 as 'timber for settlers'. Timber was taken and so was gravel, leaving the Reserve extensively damaged. In the 1960 all remaining, mature timber was cut down and sawn at a mill on Peninsula Rd. Mature marris were left and are now the only tall trees. Despite the damage sustained by logging and the removal of gravel and environmental studied carrie out in 1990 found that the Reserve contained over 160 plant species. Locals campaigned to retain a reserve, with the land being vested in local Shire in 1993.Understory plants trigger plants, orchids, peas, wattles, native buttercups and small perennial herbs, native grasses and sedges. There are many wildflowers to see in season and a large variety of birdlife.
