Karak (Red Tail) Trail

The Karak Trail (Noongar word for the red-tailed black cockatoo) is accessible to walkers, cyclists, families with prams, wheelchairs and gophers, with rubbish bins and seating dotted along its length.

It is a 3.5km tarmacked path that starts west of the Collie Cemetery and meanders through the lovely state forest to end in Allanson on Ferguson Road.

It is a beautiful walk any time of the year with birds singing in the tall jarrah, marri and paperbark trees lining the path and in the Spring there is a wonderful display of wildflowers, especially the lovely kangaroo paw which is much larger and vividly coloured compared to its garden counterpart.
