Easy track
Starting from Rotary Park on Bussell Highway, Margaret River, this walk takes you to 10 Mile Brook Dam and back via the 10 Mile Brook Trail. This is a pleasant 15km return walk along a shared-use trail that leads to 10 Mile Brook Dam. Mile Brook Dam got its name from the small brook that was dammed in the 1990s to supply the Margaret River and surrounding settlements with water. The walk starts at Rotary Park near 'Old Kate', a preserved steam engine at the northern edge of Margaret River. The trail follows one of the many old timber tramways in the area, meandering alongside the river with some wonderful views and scenery along the way. Keep a lookout out for the White-breasted Robin, Golden Whistler and other birds along the trail. This is also a great spot for seeing beautiful wildflowers in Spring. Upon reaching the dam, there's a nice picnic stop at Rusden Picnic Site before following the river back to Rotary Park. The picnic site has toilets, barbeque facilities and picnic tables. This is a moderately easy trail, suitable for most ages. The trail is a combination of compacted earth and coarse gravel, with a flat surface and little elevation change. The path is suitable for bicycles, prams, and possibly also for wheelchair users with assistance. There are summer and winter routes, so be sure to take the winter route during the wet months as the summer route gets very wet underfoot. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
