Jabitj Trail is a 12km, grade 3 Return hike located in Wellington National Park Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.

Summary

The Jabitj Trail meaning running water in the Noongar language,  is a 12 kilometre return trail that follows the Collie River between Wellington Dam and Honeymoon Pool in Wellington National Park.  It offers delightful views of the rapids and pools along the way.  An excellent trail, this is a perfect walk for a weekend away from Perth.

This trail, although descending along the river, has some steep and rocky ascents and descents, with some climbing over logs required. However it provides wonderful views of the rapids and the tranquil pools of the Collie River. The amount of water running depends on the amount being released from the bottom of the dam. This water is used for irrigation downstream. It is possible to swim in the quiet pools along the way. Note that LeonaRoad Drive, the road running alongside the river on the opposite bank, is one way from the dam to Honeymoon Pool.
