About Wildflower Walk, Crooked Brook Forest
A 3 kilometre, 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 Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions 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.
