Top Trails

If you're visiting a region or a National Park and only have limited time - deciding which trails to explore can be a difficult decision!

We asked West Australians to nominate their Top Trails – the ones which they felt had the ‘wow’ factor and showed WA at its best.

These trails are spread across the state and are of all types – so if you only have time to do one trail on your next trip we hope this list helps.

If you know an amazing trail you think should be on this list let us know about it!

The TRAIL FILTER is on the MAP page.
