Rotary Park beside the beautiful Margaret River is a special entry statement that provides a welcome and recreational area beside the forest and the river at the town’s northern doorstep. Over the years the park has grown from the installation of heritage steam engine ‘Old Kate’ to development of gardens, barbeques, toilets, play-ground, exercise equipment, information bay and picnic facilities.
More informationThe park is set amongst towering native trees which offers plenty of shade even on the hottest of days.
Rotary Park is the perfect place to stop and rest when travelling through Margaret River without stopping in Margaret River town itself.
Set along the Margaret River with a footbridge across the water to the Margaret River Heritage area, the stop is relaxing, educational and beautiful.
It is a memorial to the pioneers of the timber industry in the Margaret River region. You can even climb onto the locomotive and imagine what it was like cruising through the forest over 100 years ago.
There is a wishing well if you feel like making a wish. This is also the trail head for the Ten Mile Brook cycle and walking Trail, a 15 km return trail along the brook to the Ten Mile Brook Dam.
This is the starting point of the Margaret River heritage Trail which takes you on a nice easy walk along the river across a small bridge and back to the Rotary Park.
Keep an eye out for the White- breasted Robin, Golden Whistler and other bush Birds. This is also a great spot for Wildflowers in the spring!
When you cross the lovely wooden footbridge over the Margaret River you will find original settlers buildings including the Old Milking Shed, Dairy and Group House.
