Both walking trails at Marrinup are loop trails and graded as suitable for most ages and fitness levels.  Some bushwalking experience is desirable but even smaller children will enjoy getting out in nature and exploring Marrinup Falls.  Drinking water is not supplied and all walkers should plan ahead to avoid dehydration;  especially in summer months.

Marrinup Falls Walk – 1.4km (approx. 45mins)

The Marrinup Falls Walk Trail is a stunning, relatively easy Grade 3, circuit trail that meanders through lovely native bush; located on Grey Road, north-west from the old Marrinup Town site and camping ground. Enjoy the serenity, scenic views, birdlife, wildflowers in spring, native animals and waterfalls. The best time of year to see the falls flowing is during and just after the winter rains (June to early September).

Facilities available: Car parking at the start/finish of walk trail loop.  Drinking water is not available .

POW Camp Trail – 4.5km circuit (approx. 2 hours)

A mysterious place with an interesting and surprising history. This trail has recently been upgraded with signage and information; a lovely walk while absorbing some local history. The trail begins at the carpark and the camp entry is approx 300m along the path.  There are interpretive information panels at the entry to the camp and the trail follows the original foundations. The best time to walk this trail is in Spring when wildflowers are making a stunning display.

Facilities available: Car parking and drop toilet facilities available at the start of the walk trail.
