Wadandi Track - Busselton to Flinders Bay Rail Trail

The Shire of Augusta-Margaret River, City of Busselton and the National Trust of Australia (WA) have been working in partnership to develop a masterplan for a world class recreational, tourism and educational trail which showcases the heritage of the former Busselton to Flinders Bay Railway plus the industries and communities which it served from 1884 to 1957. The 105 km trail will highlight the significant natural, Aboriginal and historic heritage values of this beautiful place.

The South West Capes region of Western Australia is recognised as one of the world’s 25 biodiversity hotspots and is home to a range of rare and significant flora and fauna. The area already boasts internationally renowned surf beaches, magnificent scenery and a world class wine industry. The opportunity now exists for it to become part of an international network of rail-trails.

Utilising the knowledge and experience of several expert consultants, the development of a masterplan has been overseen by a steering committee consisting of Councillors and staff from the Shire of Augusta Margaret River and City of Busselton and staff from The National Trust of Australia (WA).
