    South west of Wellington Lake and Dam on part of the Discovery Tour drive is King Tree Road. On this road you will see the King Jarrah. This tree is beautiful but fragile at an age around 600 years old. Set in a Jarrah forrest, it is the centrepiece for a number of forest walks. There is a timber boardwalk and viewing platform leading up to the tree which allows for safer viewing.

    Location : King Tree Road, Fergusson Valley Area.

    The Sika Circuit

    by keeweechic Written Jan 2, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Sika Circuit is one of the walking trails in the area. The looped trail comes off the Munda Biddi and is a steep climb in parts but provides some wonderful views of the valley enroute down to the river. Not for the unfit as it is proclaimed to be one of the States most challenging trails. The walk is 9.4kms long and will take around 4 hours.

    Location : Off the Wellington Weir Road.
