Peaceful walk trail in Busselton
Ambergate Reserve consists of 75 hectares of shrub and woodland and is located just 11km out of the Busselton town centre. The reserve is rich with a variety of plants and wildlife and has a strong focus on conservation and rehabilitation.



The walk trail that runs through the reserve is accessible via the car park off of Queen Elizabeth Road and is roughly 4km long. The trail is very easy and consists of entirely flat terrain. It also consists of four road crossings and could theoretically be commenced at any of these crossings. However, the Busselton Naturalists Club who manages the reserve has asked that people start at the Queen Elizabeth road entrance as there is a footbath station there to clean shoes to prevent the entrance of Jarrah Dieback fungus.

Along the walk trail, there is a 450m loop known as the possum path which passes through an area dedicated to possum protection. Since, they are nocturnal creatures it would be unlikely to spot any during the daytime.

The easy to spot Possum Path


If you decide to visit this beautiful reserve, please stay on the track as there are tiger snakes in the area and to avoid damaging the plants surrounding the paths.
