return

↑ 349 m
↓ -349 m

Moderate track
Starting from Quarry Car Park, Worsley, this return walk takes you to Honeymoon Campground and back. The name of the walk translates to running water from the local Noongar language, which comes from the delightful views of the rapids and pools of water along the trail that will accompany you. There are certain facilities like toilettes and car parking at the location where the trail commences. You might want to wear appropriate footwear as there are certain places where the track is rocky and steep. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
