Description

Cycling

The Munda Biddi Trail is a 1000km off-road trail from Mundaring to Albany. This ultimate ‘cycle and camp’ trail has facilities like free huts and campsites, toilets (BYO toilet paper), and there is a town every 45-50km to break up the journey. The best time to tackle it is during autumn, spring, and parts of winter and it’s suitable for all skill levels (see www.mundabiddi.org.au for more details). In Albany, bikes can be hired from Passmore Cycles (08 9841 2623) or Albany Bicycle Hire (08 9842 2468); both will deliver your bikes to any accommodation in the Albany city area, free of charge (does passmore cycles offer this too?) Download the Cycle Amazing Albany Map from www.transport.wa.gov.au for an overview of all of Albany’s trails. The Go Taste trail is an easy 75km loop through the countryside past food producers (see Wining and Dining, right). In town, the beach trail to Middleton Beach is a 6km return trip littered with lookouts and beach views, and suits the majority of fitness levels; you can also choose to venture a further 3km north from Middleton Beach to Emu Point along the dual pathway running along the beachfront. For wildflowers and wildlife, a four-hour eastward trail leads around Oyster Harbour to Two Peoples Bay Nature Reserve, where you can refresh with a swim and a picnic.

Description

An hour’s drive south east of Perth, Jarrahdale is an ideal day trip for a walk and lunch at the winery or one of the cafes.

Originally a timber mill town in 1872, with the last mill closing in 1997, Jarrahdale is now a historic town using its jarrah trees for tourism instead of logging.

Kitty’s Gorge Trail follows the Serpentine River and Gooralong Brook. Along the way, it passes impressive granite outcrops and the Brook's many waterfalls. It has steep loose sections and uneven ground and requires a degree of fitness. It can be accessed from either the carpark opposite the cemetary in Jarrahdale or from the Falls carpark in the Serpentine National Park. If walking from the township of Jarrahdale include the short loop of Stacey’s Track.

While in the area, why not try one of the many other walking trails.  They range from short ambles to longer challenging trails, more details and maps can be found in the "Walks Around Jarrahdale" booklet and CD which is available at Visitor Centres or outlets in Jarrahdale.
