The Breakers Trail maybe short in length but not in interest. Along the easy path, walkers will find the rock formations fascinating. At the end of the trail is a picnic area that was once a popular location for early settlers to socialise. Interpretive signage along the way gives the walker a great insight into the human as well as natural history of the area. During springtime, wildflowers provide colourful displays.

We love to hear from people who've been on our Western Australian trails, so it would be most appreciated it if you wanted to leave a review.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
