Hester Forest Walks
There are four bush walks in the Hester Forest ranging from a 30 minute walk through a white gum valley up to a 10 km hike alongside the adjoining farms.
1. Jarrah-Marri Forest Trail is an easy walk of two hours within a block of forest bounded on one side by farmland and the other by the Bridgetown-Boyup Brook Road. Walk around the boundary or along the creek and enjoy the seasonal wildflowers and a variety of birds.
2. Wandoo Valley Walk is a walk of around 30 minutes through a white gum valley with grass trees, banksias and a grandfather wandoo. Look for the variety of wildflowers in season and the eagles' nest on the left as you enter the forest.
