Rotary South Bank River Trail, Margaret River
Rotary South Bank River Trail is an easy 2.4 kilometre loop walk along the north and south shores of the beautiful Margaret River.
About the Trail
Starting in Rotary Park the trail follows the track along the north shore to the bridge and river crossing at Barret Street Weir. The trail then returns to Rotary Park via the south shore and the footbridge at the old settlement across the river into Rotary Park.
The park is set amongst towering native trees which offer plenty of shade even on the hottest of days.
Rotary Park is the perfect place to stop and rest when travelling through Margaret River without stopping in Margaret River town itself.
Set along the Margaret River with a footbridge across the water to the Margaret River Heritage area, the stop is relaxing, educational and beautiful.
There is a wishing well if you feel like making a wish. This is also the trail head for the Ten Mile Brook cycle and walking Trail, a 15km return trail along the brook to the Ten Mile Brook Dam.
This is the starting point of the Margaret River heritage Trail which takes you on a nice easy walk along the river across a small bridge and back to the Rotary Park.
Keep an eye out for the White- breasted Robin, Golden Whistler and other bush Birds. This is also a great spot for Wildflowers in the spring!
When you cross the lovely wooden footbridge over the Margaret River you will find original settlers buildings including the Old Milking Shed, Dairy and Group House.
