Starting from the Northcliffe Pioneer Museum, Northcliffe, this walk takes you to Acacia Picnic Spot and back via the Bibbulmun Track. This walk is for those who are looking for a beautiful walk to complete with the family. You can start the trail from the back of the Northcliffe Pioneer Museum. After you pass through the coastal swamp vegetation, you reach the Acacia Picnic spot, where you can have your lunch and take a break. There is a BBQ, a shelter and seats on the spot. The walk is also suitable for young children. 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.
