About Bardi Creek Trail, Northcliffe
The Bardi Creek Trail leaves from the back of the Northcliffe Pioneer Museum in the center of town. Follow the trail for 700m into Northcliffe Forest Park and you will find the enchanted Arcadia picnic spot in the middle of the forest. This trail is also part of the Bibbulmun Track.
The walk takes you through coastal swamp vegetation, and will take you back to town. In winter, take care as you use the stepping stones to cross Bardi Creek, and in summer watch for flashes of colour from the bright red bottlebrush.
