Taking in the Jarrah forests between Collie and Balingup, this section introduces you to the first of the farmland that is synonymous with the South West of WA. Visiting in spring will give you ample opportunity to view carpets of wildflowers, spot intricate orchids and walk along ephemeral streams. While not often mentioned as one of the "wow" sections of the track, this four day walk has it's own charms and walked at the right time of year, it can be a wonderful experience.
