A 3km, moderate walking circuit through Crooked Brook Forest’s magnificent wildflower display. The higher section is an undulating forest walk to a beautiful lookout over the Crooked Brook valley and into Bunbury, while the lower section offers an easier walk. The lower section is also used by cyclists following the Munda Biddi Trail.

Crooked Brook Forest is a beautiful recreation site situated just 25km from the centre of Bunbury, in the Shire of Dardanup and adjacent to the beautiful Ferguson Valley. This popular forest destination lies within State forest managed by the Department of Parks and Wildlife and has been developed by the local community into ‘a forest for all people’. It provides access for elderly and disabled visitors as well as challenges for the more energetic walker.

Nice easy walk close to Bunbury, in the lovely Ferguson Valley.

Supported by great organisations

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.
