GOOD FOR BEGINNERS

Mountain Quarry | For some of the best climbing in the metro area, this is ideal for first-time abseiling attempts. Located off Coulston Road in the Greenmount National Park, it offers a range of climbs for beginners to advanced grades. Most of the routes have been bolted and a number of anchors have been set.

Climbing at Stathams Quarry

Statham's Quarry is considered a rare example of a stone quarry which has retained physical evidence of its operations, and continues to be used for abseiling and rock climbing.

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.
