Jarrahdale is listed as a Historical Town by the National Trust, and was an important town from the 1830s, when valuable timber was exported across the world. The Heritage Walks provide you with a wealth of information, while enjoying a gentle stroll through the forest and town centre.

Both walks starts at the Old Post Office and Museum, where a detailed booklet can be purchased. The Short Walk is an easy 4.5km loop on gravel surface and paved pathways, while the Long Walk add 4.8km. Both trails overlap. Interpretative signages provide a wealth of information and historical photographs, with maps and markers to guide your steps.

The Heritage Walks welcome all fluffy friends! They pass nearby stores where food and drinks could be purchased, including local produces. Stores offer tables, so you can wait and regroup with family and friends who may have preferred to experience other trails, such as Kitty's Gorge

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.
