Hike Summary

The Marri Trail is a 10 kilometre moderate walk through jarrah and marri forest in the Crooked Brook Forest, Dardanup. The trail has several scenic lookouts spots over Bunbury and the Ferguson Valley.

With minor undulations this trail makes a pleasant walk and the wildfowers are abundant in spring. The walk is signposted with a marri nut emblem.  A section of the trail is multi-purpose and shared with the Munda Biddi Mountain Bike Trail. It is advisable to carry drinking water.
