Tour Overview

Escape to the Bickley Valley,  to enjoy the best of the Mason & Bird Heritage Trail  and the New Victoria Dam Walk Trail on this 7 km combination hike, exploring Australia’s pioneer heritage through the Korung National Park.   From Australia’s oldest wooden bridge, the Munday Brook Bridge, to the first Western Australian dam, the rich history of this trail will inspire you.

The Mason and Bird Heritage Trail follows the route of an 1870’s tramway from Mason Mill to the swan River, which operated in the late 1800’s to transport jarrah timber from Mason’s Mills to the Canning River.   Enjoy the abundance of valley views, expansive forrests of Wandoo and beautiful granite outcrops as we adventure in the Bickley Valley.
