The Pelican Trail follows the banks of the Blackwood River estuary at the sleepy town of Augusta. It is magnificently peaceful, especially on calm evenings. For earlybirds, sunrises are spectacular. Often the tranquil waters are broken by surfacing dolphins and splashing fish.
As the name suggests, pelicans feeding and resting on rocks are an everyday event. There is nothing difficult about this trail and it is easily accessible from waterfront holiday homes and the town caravan park.

We love to hear from people who've been on our Western Australian trails, so it would be most appreciated it if you wanted to leave a review.
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.
