About Roley Pools Walk Trail, Roleystone
This trail runs along the north side of the Canning River in Roleystone, between Soldiers Road and the staircase entrance from Collins Road.
Roley Pools has been used as a local swimming hole for many years and is part of Roleystone folklore. The walk along the rivers edge encompasses a variety of terrain such as giant Granite outcrops and Dolerite dykes.
A wide and diverse range of wildlife can be found in and around this section of the river, with many native ducks, kingfishers, Quenda, kangaroos, wallabies, several species of fish, snakes, lizards and Australia's only native water rat, "Rakali" residing there.
This section of the trail at Roley Pools can be accessed from Soldiers Road and Collins Road, with a small area of parking available at each site. Collins Road has direct access down a steep stone staircase to the main Pools area.
