Discover the Aboriginal heritage of Dryandra on this 5 kilometre loop walk, with interpretive signs explaining aspects of the local Noongar culture, including an ochre pit. The trail meanders through beautiful stands of wandoo and passes the site of an old fire tower.
The Ochre Trail passes through wandoo woodland, offering the opportunity to look for the elusive numbat. It starts opposite the arboretum on Tomingley Drive and is signposted in an anticlockwise direction. For more information about this area see the Dryandra Woodland Network page.
