Starting From the car park at the northeastern end of Peron Road, Francois Peron National Park, this walk takes you on a stroll alongside the old station buildings. The walk is historically important and gives information about how life was before and how local people used to live in the area. There is also a bathtub that visitors can get into. It is made of an artesian bore that once watered thirsty stock. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
