Wattle Walk is a 1.1km, grade 2 Circuit hike located in Balingup Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 0.5hrs to complete.

Summary

The Wattle Walk in Golden Valley Tree Park, Balingup, is at its best from mid winter and early spring when the yellow blossoms are out in profusion. By looking out for gold arrows, this short loop trail is easily followed. It is not a formed path, but its easy going.

Taking a stroll along the Wattle Walk in Golden Valley Tree Park in winter and spring provides dramatic yellows that brighten the dullest days. That is in contrast to the mostly bare branches of deciduous trees in the World Collection section during that time of year. The beauty of this park is the subtle and not so subtle differences between the Australian Collection and World Collection. Some sections of the Wattle Walk coincide with the Tall Gums Short Walk, so you get to see a bit of both. Not bad, if your time in the park is limited. The walk also includes stands of native pines and interested patch of oil mallees, more a tree from the Wheat belt. Most people take up to 30 minutes to do this trail, but that may take longer when the flowers are in bloom.   This is just one of many trails in this beautiful park.
