About the Trail

Although this trail is only short, for nature lovers it is packed with attractions. The vibrant red dunes host a large variety of plants, many of them putting on great flowering displays in spring. The dune vegetation also shelters numerous birds including the rare thick-billed grasswren and the beautiful singing chiming wedgebill. On the top of a dune is a bird hide.

The tidal flats and beach are a haven for waterbirds including pelicans and ospreys. It's easy enough, however sandy sections may make it a bit more of an effort. The trail starts from the car park at the back of Monkey Mia Visitors Centre.
