About this place
Shaded picnic benches and wheelchair-accessible toilets are provided in a woodland setting toward the end of the Lesueur Scenic Drive.
A short trail leads down into Cockleshell Gully. The first few hundred metres of the walk trail is wheelchair accessible.
The Yued Ponar trail loops through a varied landscape above the Cockleshell Gully Picnic area. It passes through low heath, small sections of wandoo woodlands and winding creek lines with a high diversity of plant life typical of the park. Information along the way gives an insight into the traditional lives and resources of Yued Noongar people through the seasons. The trail climbs steadily, with some steep sections before following the edge of a plateau toward Mount Peron.
A short spur trail leads to the summit where there are sweeping views toward the Indian Ocean and inland across the park toward Mount Lesueur. The trail then traverses 600m to reach the Kada Boodja lookout before returning to the valley floor.
A good level of fitness and bushwalking experience is recommended. More information is available at Trails WA
No fires are permitted as this park is extremely susceptible to fire.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
