Balingup Racecourse Flora Reserve
Directions - Located just outside of Balingup, head north from town for three kilometres until you see the signs for the Flora Reserve on your right hand side. Unfortunately the turn happens during the middle of an overtaking zone so be careful when there is traffic around. Follow the entry road all the way to the information shelter that is on your right. Park up and choose your route.
The Hike - The Balingup Racecourse Flora reserve was a place that always caught my eye when travelling along South Western Highway and I kept meaning to add it on to a future visit. It's taken until 2022 to do just that, with an adventurous day out hiking the Greenbushes Loop and the Bridgetown Jarrah Park. Leaving this one to the end of the day, so I had a proper amount of time to take in the first two, I drove the pleasant route through backcountry roads from the Bridgetown Jarrah Park, through Greenbushes and on towards Balingup.
