Wunanga Trail Whiteman Park
Updated: Feb 2, 2020
It's been a while since we have walked the Wunanga Trail. Wunanga means ‘quiet’ or ‘peaceful’ in Noongar and this trail certainly lives up to its name. The yellow trail is just over 4km long so will take about 1 to 2 hours. As the trail is set in a figure of eight you can do a shorter walk by just completing one loop following the orange trail markers. The trail is mostly flat but is dirt (not compacted) so not particularly suited to prams.
The trail starts just behind the Revolutions Transport Museum near the Village Railway Junction Station and heads through the western part of the park. This trail various woodlands and is completely different to Whiteman Park's other trails - Goo Loorto and Werrilyiup - which are wetland walks. Trail notes can be downloaded from the Whiteman Park website.
The trail passes by Kangaroo Flats Station with it's beautiful mosaic mural.
You might spot a kangaroo of two or make friends with a different creature on this walk.
The best time of year is Winter and Spring when the fungi and wildflowers are out.
