Karak Trail – Red Tail Trail.

A competition was held to name the trail. The Karak Trail is named after the red tail black cockatoo. The Aboriginal Noongar word for the red tail black cockatoo is Karak. The Karak Trail officially opened in October 2016. With its painted white lines on asphalt stretching some 3.5km making this is an ideal walkers path.  The painted white dividing lines makes it easy for the cyclists to keep to the correct side of the path. The path has bench seats at well placed intervals on the trail making it an easy walk for the family with children. You can join the trail near the Collie Cemetery and again at Allanson on the Ferguson Road.

 

Karak Trail – Wildlife

The Karak Trail winds its way through State Forrest between Collie and Allanson.  With the splendor of jarrah, marri and paperbark trees on either side of the path way. Look out for the wildlife such as the chuditch, quenda, quokka, brushtail possum, woylie or western ringtail possum and the ever reliable kangaroo. With around 300 species of wildflower and 70 different bird species makes the trail a wonderful walk for everyone.
