About Greenbushes Loop
Located 2.5 hours south of Perth on the South West Highway, the Greenbushes Loop is a rewarding 16km trail that is worth checking out on your next trip to the area. Setting off from the Greenbushes Discovery Centre in the heart of town, the trail visits several historic town sites such as Schwenke's Dam, remnant of the old Vultan Tin Mine and Mt Jones Dam.
Included on the loop is a section of the world famous Bibbulmun Track that takes in the beautiful forest and sweeping views of the Blackwood farming valley. After leaving the Bibbulmun Track, the trail makes its way back to the town of Greenbushes where you can reward yourself with a tasty treat from the cake shop or a well earned drink from one of the two pubs in town.
