The Wadandi Track, formerly known as "Rails to Trails” takes you through some of the most beautiful natural bush, farmland and vineyards in the Margaret River region, three hours south of Perth. Passing though peppermint, jarrah and young karri forest the trail provides a firsthand view of the abundant bird life. The trail was once a part of the old railway network that was built during the timber boom, known as the Busselton - Flinders Bay railway. The trail begins or ends (depending where you start) at Cowaramup and finishes at Margaret River. Along the 5 kilometres north of Margaret River there are numerous bridges crossing a major river and creeks and streams of varying sizes. The trail is easy to navigate with picnic areas along the way. The spectacular birdlife includes yellow robins, parrots and blue wrens and the wildflowers are stunning in Spring (September to December). As it was a railway, the gradient is relatively flat, and the terrain is generally gentle. However, it can get moderate in some places and a mountain bike is recommended.

Rode south on the Wadandi Track section of Rails to Trails from Cowaramup (just behind SES on Miamup Rd) to Carters Rd Trail Head just before Margaret River town. Distance is approx 12kms. Gradient is near flat, easy and surface overall is not too slippery. Trip took about 50 mins with with 6yr old and 7 & a 1/2 on 3 speed bikes and a couple stops but at a fairly casual pace, who lasted the distance without asking “are we there yet”. Trip without kids in about approx 35-40mins depending on your pace.
