Plenty of big trees are the major reason why nature lovers are attracted to Bridgetown Jarrah Park. By walking the narrow winding trails, hikers constantly gaze upwards at the sheer majesty of tall karris, blackbutts, jarrah and marri reaching for the sky. At ground level, there is a myriad of plant species, including a variety of orchids. In winter and spring, fallen logs and tree stumps are coated in a luxurious blanket of vibrant green mosses and colourful fungi.

Birdwatchers can point their binoculars at purple crowned lorikeets, blue wrens, golden whistlers and countless other species that frequent the treetops and understory. Hike for as long as you want and bring the children to enjoy nature in all its finery. The Bridgetown Jarrah Park is a mere 15-minute drive from Bridgetown along the very scenic Brockman Highway. Excellent trail maps are available at the trailhead information shelter.

The Blackbutt Trail can be done to include all the smaller trails, taking about three hours.  Conveniently the Blackbutt Trail can be broken into loops of

  • Shield Tree Trail - 0.8km return - 20 minutes

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.
