Sequoia Short Walk in Golden Valley Tree Park is just 3km out of Balingup. By taking a stroll along this trail in the World Collection area you are stepping into the North America woods. Stands of redwoods, Douglas fir and sequoia stand proudly. Nevertheless, it will be a long time before they reach the lofty heights of their American cousins. 

There is a picnic area and shelter for a rest before considering your next walk. From any point along the trail walkers can admire many of the 250 species of Northern Hemisphere trees that grow along hillsides and valleys. Golden Valley Tree Park is Western Australia’s largest arboretum. Many trees are labeled to make identification easy. The park is worth visiting all year round to really appreciate the seasonal variations.

This is a fabulous short walk within the beautiful Golden Valley Tree Park in Balingup. This trail is part of the stunning World Collection of trees which features many mature deciduous favourites alongside rare and unusual specimens. The trails are well marked and sign posted and it's a great place to picnic with picnic tables, BBQ's and toilets available. The views are stunning all year round and it's without doubt the best place in WA to immerse yourself in the 'season', with changes all year round! You can take a dog on a lead and it adjoins the Bibbulmun Track. Would definitely recommend spending time exploring this Park.

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.
