Yaburara Heritage Trail, Karratha
About the Trail
The trail commences from the water tanks over looking the town centre and access is via the information bay on Karratha Road, next to the Karratha Visitor Centre or from the back of Karratha Leisureplex off Dampier Highway. There are also two short branch trails and three longer branch trails - a secondary trail around the base of the hills, a recreational trail following the ridge top and a nature trail along two major valleys.
Much of the Yaburara Heritage Trail is rough with loose rocks with no shade. The trail is on Aboriginal Heritage Registed sites which are significant to Aboriginal people; they are a great interest to non-Aboriginal people and they are protected by law. The layout of this trail was done in close liaison with the Ngarluma people, the Traditional Owners of the land. We trust that giving people a better understanding will engender greater respect for Aborigial culture.
