About the Trail

Steeped in history, the Yange Kep Bidi’s unique path links with the Claremont Meanders "Cobblers and Convicts Trail"; the City of Nedlands' "Mount Claremont Walk" and the Town of Cambridge's proposed "Western Bush and Lakelands Trail" and it’s "Heritage Trail" on route to Lake Monger in the North. Passing through varied metropolitan areas, refreshment and coffee shops can be enjoyed on route.

Look for triangular markers bearing the Long Neck Turtle as an icon installed into pathways and bollards along the route.  The trail is not steep, and is dog friendly, making it ideal for enjoying family walks. The linked lakes offer a wide variety of wildlife, including many species of birds. A vast array of wildflowers can be enjoyed between July and October. 

Whadjuk Trails are all linked and can be combined to extend the walk, or looped with other trails to create a shorter loop
