Golden Valley Tree Park
The Hike - With a free day to explore the area around Bunbury, one place on my "to-hike" list was the Balingup Golden Valley Tree Park and I was hoping I wouldn't be too late to experience the kaleidoscope of autumn hues this park is famous for. Located a short drive/walk south of the centre of Balingup, the park is well signed from South Western Highway and is the official exit out of town for the Bibbulmun Track. I arrived at the main information board and old homestead after a cracking morning exploring the Bridgetown Jarrah Park. This picturesque little building was once the main building for the farms that occupied this area and since 1980 the land has been turned into the 60ha arboretum that is the largest in the state.
