Rotary Park Margaret River

Star 4.5 (300 Google reviews)

Rotary Park sits beside the beautiful Margaret River at the town’s northern doorstep, providing a special welcome and entry statement . The park provides a lovely recreational area beside both the forest and the river. Over the years the park has grown from the installation of heritage steam engine ‘Old Kate’, to the development of gardens, a playground, exercise equipment, barbeques, picnic facilities, toilets and an information bay.
The 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 without stopping in the town itself. Set along the Margaret River, this stop is beautiful, relaxing, and educational! When you cross the lovely wooden footbridge over the Margaret River to the 'Old Settlement', you will find original settlers' buildings including the Old Milking Shed, Dairy and 'Group House'.
'Old Kate' 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.
Rotary Park is also the trailhead for the Ten Mile Brook cycle and walking trail, a 15km return trail along the brook to the Ten Mile Brook Dam. 
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!

Great place for families with BBQ workout equipment and awsome walk trails with wild animals everywhere.

Dennis Schram 26 July 2021

Good for a quick toilet stop, picnic, or better still take the 1km round walk upriver, cross at the wheir and come back on the other side. Longer walks available.

Nice point to start a walk through the surrounding bushland. Restroom is a bonus
