About the Trail

The Joseph and Dulcie Nannup trail is approximately 4km long, flat easy walk with interpretives signage sharing an insight into the cultural history of the Serpentine River.

The Nannup's used to live in bush camps along the river, sustaining their family on fish caught from the river and lakes in the area. In honour of their memory and the continuing use of the River by their family this walk trail has been named after them.

Boardwalks along this trail overlook the scenic Goegrup Lake, which is fed by the Serpentine River that begins at the Darling Scarp, and is one of the three major rivers that drain into the Peel-Harvey Estuary, an internationally important wetland listed on the Ramsar Treaty.

Enjoy sighting diverse birdlife, Quenda and possibly dolphins, not to mention the abundant varied native vegetation.
