We acknowledge the Wiilman people of the Noongar nation as the Traditional Owners of the land through which these trails pass.
Significant parts of Dwellingup Adventure Trails (DAT) Stage 1 project have been completed for some time and are drawing rave reviews from trail-users enjoying the well designed and expertly constructed trails.
The DAT project, and the new Dwellingup Trails and Visitor Centre developed by the Shire of Murray, have seen Dwellingup emerge as a world-class trails destination. It’s only a short drive from Perth with facilities for individuals and families to enjoy all the adventure activities on offer.
There are a range of walking, mountain biking, four-wheel drive and canoe trails in the area as well as the internationally recognised Munda Biddi Cycle Trail and Bibbulmun Track.
The DAT Stage 2 project will add more trails and facilities and link existing trail networks to showcase the area’s natural landscapes and cultural heritage and continue to make a significant economic contribution to the region.
The new trails will continue to connect visitors to the nature and culture of Dwellingup while expanding and enhancing the experience.
