Benson Street, Merredin, 6415
The Merredin Peak Trail provides an uninterrupted view across the town of Merredin and the surrounding rural area. As the highest peak in the area it offers spectacular panoramic views as far as the eye can see.
Choose between two walk trails, depending on your level of fitness and stop to read the informative plaques indicating various points of interest along the trail. The moderate slope will take you about half an hour, whilst the steeper more challenging slope will appeal to regular hikers and will take about an hour to complete.
Much of the walk is across a rocky surface which can become slippery and there is minimal shade. It is advisable that you wear suitable walking shoes, sun cream and a hat and ensure you carry sufficient water. Stop in at the visitor centre to collect a map of the trail and learn more about the other attractions in the area.
The Merredin Peak Trail is one of many recommended stops along the Golden Pipeline Heritage Trail. Merredin is the largest regional town in the Central Eastern Wheatbelt and is a three hour drive east of Perth.
