The Bicentennial Walk Trail along the river leads to the Music Park where the sound shell, water, picnic table and outdoor gym equipment can be enjoyed. While on the Bicentennial Walk a short detour into the Caravan Park will provide an opportunity to see the only remaining Flax Mill site within Australia with interesting buildings and a sand sculpture of international standard.

Music Park

Music Park

Situated on the Riverside in Jackson Street on the way to the Flax Mill Caravan Park, the Music Park offers a picnic table, water, large open spaces and outdoor gym equipment. This facility is a designated dog exercise area together with the nearby oval. A stroll along the Bicentennial Walk Trail by the river will bring you out at the Lions Tourist Park. This trail is 6 km long and travels around the outskirts of the town through two bush reserves where wild flowers are abundant in season, and along the banks of the Boyup Brook to return you to this point. The nearby Flax Mill at the Caravan Park site is worth a visit.

Boyup Brook Billabong

On the banks of the Boyup Brook, this is a fully natural setting where a very small pool and rock formations provide a tranquil experience. Access is across the footbridge behind the Railway buildings. On the way down to the water you will find a picnic table where, if you are very lucky and quiet and patient, you may see robin red breasts or blue wrens amongst other small bird life. Much work is being carried out to try to restore this part of the Brook to its former natural beauty.
