Get your hiking boots on and hit these top trails.
CAPE NATuRALISTE | WALk NETWORk
This is a series of interconnecting loop walks from the lighthouse around
the rugged Cape Naturaliste peninsula. These walks lead to spectacular
viewpoints above high cliffs, which run all along the north coast between
the cape and Bunker Bay. From September to December, you may be
lucky enough to spot whales or seals from the trail. To the west, a path
winds through a wild rocky area, reminiscent of a lunar landscape, with
terrific views to the cape itself and to the surf breaks along the western
shore. You may choose from a short, easy stroll or a longer and more
demanding half-day walk. Pick up a map at the Busselton Visitor Centre
on your way through. NOTE Although the paths here are short, some are
quite rough and rocky, so wear sturdy footwear.
YALLINGuP-SMIThS | BEACh WALk TRAILS
This series of circuit walks is centred on the Yallingup townsite. It includes
the short and easy Caves Trail (500m), Ghost Trail (700m) and Torpedo
Trail (2km). It also includes the longer – and more challenging – Quenda
Trail (4km) and the Wardanup Trail (5km). It’s not difficult to find your
way around them because there are maps for the walks onsite, plus
each of the trails is posted with distinctive markers. The walks pass
through some truly lovely coastal heath and woodlands with a wide
variety of wildflowers to be seen in the spring. There are also superb views
that open up, especially as you climb up to the higher parts of the ridge.
NOTE Again, while the short walks may have smooth, firm surfaces,
parts of the Quenda and Wardanup trails are rocky and steep. The
Quenda Trail returns along the beach.
The best bet for fine fishing?
INJIDuP Our experts say it’s a great beach to fish at when conditions are
calm. Take a big rod and you’re in with a chance to catch a big fish. Damo
Lane, from Dunsborough Outdoor Sports, says in winter it’s a great spot
for tailor, shark and mulloway. Mulies and strip bait – a fillet of mullet
sewn onto hooks – are good bait choices. As for smaller fish, he says
herring are caught here all year round. They’re not fussy about the bait,
apparently, but throwing burley in the water attracts them. TIP Damo says
that for bait you can use a blue sardine on a small gang hook. Little and big
fish like it, so your odds are boosted.
