This is an all-access trail that takes you through a unique piece of Western Australia's history. The historic lime kiln site was said to be the beginning of the cement industry in Western Australia.

This walk takes you through natural vegetation that has had time to regenerate since operations ceased over 100 years ago. The remnants of infrastructure can be found along the trail both in the woodland and the wetland areas.
