About Railway Walk Kwolyin
This two kilometre walk trail across Coarin Rock has some moderate to steep sections finishing with a walk along the old railway line. Kennedias, rock sheoaks, granite kunzeas and ant orchids may be found in spring.
The walk trail takes you back to the camping area over what used to be the old golf course. Look out for the scarlet runner under the rock overhang.
Kwolyin is about 200km (2.5 hours) via York. It's about 100km east of York and 40km west of Bruce Rock. While you are in the area check out the Granite Way. The wheatbelt's newest self-drive trail. The 60km trail takes visitors on a journey to some of the most amazing and iconic granite rocks in the Wheatbelt, spectacular nature reserves and farming vistas.
