off the beaten track
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
The track begins at Dawn Creek Road near Nanga Mill and ends at Quindanning. It is not designated as one way and can also be completed in the opposite direction beginning at Quindanning. It is wide enough in places for cautious passing.
Commemorating a Pioneer
The track follows the path taken by Captain Theo Fawcett, who blazed a trail through the forest in the 1800’s. Much of it runs along old rail embankments, where trains once hauled timber from the forests.
He was twice acting resident magistrate for the Murray district and he was also the only brandy distiller in Western Australia.
