Corella Trail is a 2km, grade 2 Return hike located in Cattle Pool – Goolinee Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 0.75hrs to complete.

Summary

This short and easy two kilometre return trail follows the banks of tranquil Cattle Pool in Mt Augustus National Park. It is a beautiful little walk with the potential for seeing plenty of wildlife along the way.

Cattle Pool, as the name suggests, is a large waterhole where livestock have historically quenched their thirst. It is a permanent watersource in the bed of the usually dry Lyons River. After good rains, the pool fills up and provides a stunning site. Of particular interest are the river gums that line the banks, and some are quite massive. When breezes are light, the reflections are a photographers delight. Quiet nature lovers will often observe plenty of wildlife including waterBirds, corellas and schools of large fish milling near the surface. It is not uncommon to see big goannas also known as bungarras.
