Starting from the Swarbrick Art Trail Car Park, North Walpole, this circuit walk takes you to the Swarbrick Art Walk. Immersed in different artworks depicting the historical background of the conservations efforts that have taken place around the area, Swarbrick Art Walk is an informative trail about past events. There is a 39-metre long stainless steel wall. It gives informational and aboriginal messages about the conservation of wildlife over the past 100 years. The area is also host to old karri trees that surround you and bring tranquillity to the area. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
