This universal access path is a great one for the kids and will take you over bridges and past historic and very cute little fairy houses. There's a small nature playground just near the start and plenty of rocks and pools of water to explore. This trail is the historic centre of John Forrest National Park, and plaques along the way will tell you about the history of the area, it's preservation over the years and the iconic fairy houses.
