Get close to nature and explore the Wadandi Track
Also known as the Rails to Trails path, a section of the Wadandi Track passes through the Vasse development, where train lines once went. Vasse has complemented the Track with a surrounding park and family barbecue area.
The entire Wadandi Track will form a 106km trail from Busselton to Flinders Bay once complete. The current walking and cycling track runs from Busselton Jetty to Vasse, taking in Geographe Bay and Kangaroo Gully Bridge along the way.
Our picture-perfect Nature Playground
The Vasse Nature Playground has cleverly-designed play equipment to encourage interaction with nature and adventure. There’s climbing forts, a water play station, logs, a swing, free play space, walk and cycle paths, seating spaces and the perfect spot to have a BBQ.
Recycled Marri trunks sourced from close by have been used as part of Vasse’s sustainability initiatives.
The Nature Playground is the third Vasse park to be built. These complement the Vasse Sporting Complex, which is home to many local sporting clubs.
Green Spaces & Mature Trees
It was important to us that we retained existing trees in throughout Vasse. You'll find mature trees in the Nature Playground, the entrance and around many of the green spaces. We've even received EnviroDevelopment certification for our efforts here.
We've also created plenty of green spaces, where you can relax, kick a footy or just walk.
The History of the Wadandi Track
The Wadandi Track gives locals the opportunity to venture along the original route pioneers used to transport their timber.
The name, ‘Wadandi’ comes from the indigenous Australians who lived by the ocean and followed the bush paths over Vasse land for more than 40,000 years.
Future plans will see the existing Wadandi Track extend west from Vasse to Quindalup, crossing Henry Yelverton's tramway from the 1850s. It will then head south to Metricup, joining the existing Rails to Trails route in Cowaramup.
