The 250km trek, which weaves through the communities of Portland, Cape Bridgewater, and Nelson, across the capes of Discovery Bay and trailing the Glenelg River, is one of the region’s biggest tourist attractions.

A world-class experience including rugged cliffs, sublime bays, tranquil forests and pristine river, all within four National Parks. Ideally set up for shorter walks, day walks or the whole loop.


The Petrified Forest is truly one of the natural wonders of the world.  The formation you will see when visiting this amazing sight is nothing like what you can see anywhere else and is surrounded by natural beauty in Blowholes, Fresh Water Springs and Australian and New Zealand Fur Seals.
