Adventures in Roleystone
Churchman Bushland Reserve
Directions - End of Stocker Rd, which comes off Brookton Hwy about 500m past Avocados Accommodation and is a 45 minute drive from Perth. Parking on the side of Stocker Rd and trail head is the gate stating "Wungong Regional Park".
The Hike - When driving along Brookton Hwy, through the hilly landscape on my way out Mount Dale a few weeks ago, I thought to myself, are there any good hiking trails in the hills near Roleystone? A quick bit of Googling spat out a very thin results page and my question was answered, No. This was surprising given the nature of the surroundings (hilly with patches of forest & the Canning River running through it) but I guessed for whatever reason that the area didn’t have any decent walking trails. Araluen is very close by but as far as I'm aware it doesn't have a long trail unless you walk all of the small paths that lead through the gardens. The only site that I found was by a man named Bill and pointed towards a section south of Brookton Hwy that he describes in mixed detail.
