Easy track
Starting from the car park near Merredin Railway Dam, Merredin, this walk takes you on a circuit through a variety of habitats. It is a family-friendly walk that allows visitors to observe the wildlife, such as kangaroos, echidna, snakes, lizards and certain bush bird species. The walk traverses between Wandoo woodland to Tamma thickets. The track is even, and there are only gentle hilly sections. 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.
