Description

Red Gum Spring was named for the natural water source that once existed here and for the red gums (marri) that are found in this area. Red Gum Pass Road was established in the 1890s when sandalwood carters took their wagons through Red Gum Pass to Albany to export the fragrant sandalwood to China. Red Gum Spring was a water source and resting place for the men and horses. Unfortunately Red Gum Spring no longer flows but it is still a peaceful spot to stop awhile. Enjoy a short walk through open wandoo woodland to the top of a small rise near the picnic area.

Visitors can stop at Red Gum Springs picnic area, located off Red Gum Pass Road. Toilet facilities and gas barbeques are provided.
