Blue Rock is a granite outcrop in the jarrah forest. Two moderately easy loop trails weave over the rock and into the woodlands behind it.
The Blue Rocks Walk Loops are 1.5km and 3km trails over Blue Rock and through forests recovering from bauxite mining and timber milling. Look for an inscription on top of Blue Rock believed to be carved by local children around 1945! The Blue Rocks can be slippery when wet, and there’s a medium grade rock clamber. It is recommended to keep to the track to minimise damage to mosses and lichens.
About the region
Sitting on the Darling Scarp, surrounded by forest, Jarrahdale was Western Australia's very first timber town. Today, its scenic woodlands, parks, rivers, orchards and vineyards offer a tranquil escape from modern city life, while its National Trust listed heritage gives you glimpses of a bygone country life.
This very different world lies less than an hour's drive south east of Perth city, along the South Western Highway. You can also enter its forested hinterland, the Darling Ranges, along the Bibbulmun Track - one of the world's best long distance walking trails winding over 1000 kilometres through a vast corridor of green from Kalamunda in Perth, to Albany on the south west coast.
