About Jabitj Trail, Wellington NP
This trail, although descending along the river, has some steep and rocky ascents and descents, with some climbing over logs required, however it provides wonderful views of the rapids and the tranquil pools of the Collie River. The river flows all year round due to water being constantly released form Welington Dam. In summer rthis water is used for irrigation on farmlands downstream.
There are several pools long the trail where you can have a cool off while walking, alhtough the water is very cold all year rond.
The wildlfowers are spectacular from August to November
Note that Leonard Drive, the road running alongside the river on the opposite bank, is one way from the dam to Honeymoon Pool.
