Wiilman Bilya Trail open in Wellington National Park

Postby Aushiker » Mon 21 Jan, 2019 6:26 pm

The new 20 kilometre Wiilman Bilya Trail stretches from Wellington Dam north to the Coalfields Highway, winding through magnificent blackbutt, open jarrah forest and past granite outcrops.

Bushwalkers can expect a full day walk in either direction, with the option to camp overnight at Nyingarn campsite or at Potters Gorge.

The name Wiilman Bilya pays tribute to the traditional Noongar group, Wiilman, with Bilya being the Noongar word for river. The Wiilman people have a strong cultural connection to this area.

The $320,000 walk trail was funded by the State Government through the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions and Royalties for Regions.
