Easy track
Starting from the car park off Muirrilup Road, Northcliffe, this circuit walk takes you to the Art in Nature Walk. This walk is immersed in a series of artworks that are placed in a natural bush setting and allows visitors to experience a museum setting in an open area. Some of them interact with the ecosystem and fill the hollows of trees, while there are written and auditory works that adolescents can enjoy as well. You might want to be aware of snakes during the summer days. The walk is open between 9.30am – 4.00pm with last entry at 3pm. 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.
