Karalee Rocks Extended Loop Trail is a 1.6 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Gilgai, Western Australia, Australia that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Karalee Rocks was one of Western Australia's best kept secrets. But not any longer. It has become one of Australia's best free camping sites. The area is one of the sites on the Golden Pipeline Heritage Trail, a drive trail between Mundaring Weir in Perth and Mt Charlotte in Kalgoorlie developed by the National Trust of Australia (WA). The long trail is 2.5km and takes walkers past some remarkable engineering structures built to capture water runoff from a huge granite outcrop - Karalee Rocks. The views from the top of the rocks are stunning and there are numerous interpretive panels along the trail to inform you of the incredible history of the area. The huge camping area can accommodate as many as 20 or 30 caravans and mobile homes. This site is a "must see" place on the drive between Perth and Kalgoorlie and is a short 5km drive on high quality gravel tracks off Great Eastern Highway.
