About Harvey Wildflower Ridge Walk
Located 1.5 hours south of Perth and 5km from the rural town of Harvey in the SW of WA, this delightful 1.4 km short trail has stunning views over the backwaters of the Harvey Dam to the east and all the way to the coast on the western side. The trail passes several large granite outcrops and is ablaze with wildflowers in spring.
The trail is gently undulating and suitable for most fitness levels. There are a number of seats provided along the trail where you can sit and take in the stunning views. Bird life is prolific in the area and if you are lucky you may spot a bright blue wren flitting between the undergrowth.
There is a sealed road all the way to the trailhead and a small gravel carpark with room for several cars. The trail is signed on the South West Hwy and Honeymoon Rd.
A wood fire BBQ (byo wood) and picnic table is provided and it is the perfect spot for a relaxing bush picnic after completing the trail. Please check with the Harvey Shire about when you are allowed to light a fire.
