Paths and trails

Margaret River Heritage Trail

The Shire of Augusta Margaret River is the current custodian of the Margaret River and Augusta-Busselton Heritage Trails. The trails are part of a state wide network of heritage trails that were a Heritage Council Bicentennial project in 1988.

This trail can be done in three parts.  Choose from a walk along the river, through the natural bushland or across an old railway bridge. The trails offer a half-day outing and can be combined with a picnic or a swim.
