Start the conversation

TrailsWA has launched a new website featuring content and downloadable maps for more than 800 of Western Australia’s trails.

Welcoming the new service, Minister for Sport and Recreation, David Templeman said the refreshed website was the peak offering of trail information and had something for everyone, from trailblazers to families who just want to experience a great day out in nature.

“I encourage everyone to check out the new site and plan their next day out in WA’s wonderful natural environment, be it bushwalking, mountain biking, trail running or kayaking.”

According to TrailsWA, it is now possible for anyone to access the State’s world-class trails network.

“The new website features downloadable maps that can be accessed offline and is rich in content, offering information on bushwalking, mountain biking, trail running and water trails, through to food and wine trails or getting about in a wheelchair,” Trials WA said.

“In addition, the curated content is destination focused and designed to help people plan and explore the regions surrounding trails, including cafes, accommodation, bike shops and transport services.”

It said the new features include trail running and food and wine maps, elevation maps, user reviews and gaming options to enhance involvement and connection with the trails community, such as earning badges for completed trails.

“The refreshed website comes off the back of one of the busiest periods for WA’s trail industry, which has experienced considerable growth as more Western Australians holiday at home due to the pandemic.

Minister for Environment, Reece Whitby said the Government was committed to enhancing and expanding conservation areas and had so far created nine new national parks since 2017.

“Our national parks offer some truly amazing experiences and the new Trails WA website is a great way to plan an adventure,” Mr Whitby said.

“I encourage everyone with a passion for nature and the outdoors to explore what is on offer and enjoy our wonderful landscapes.”
