Trail walk takes in beautiful landscape
Trail walk takes in beautiful landscape

The Karratha Community Association will hold their annual community fun walk next Saturday.

Held along the Yaburara Trail, the walk will take in spectacular views of the Karratha town centre, Nickol Bay and the Burrup Peninsula.

Association chairman Stuart Otto said it was a great event and encouraged everyone to take part.

“It’s really good that the community can be part of just a day out with the family walking our beautiful hills and … the scenery looking back at our outback and looking forward at our beautiful ocean scape,” he said.

Mr Otto said it would be the second time the association had held the event.

“We are starting to make sure that this becomes more of a signature event for the community at large,” he said.

He said it was a great way for people to get some exercise while enjoying the trail which is steeped in history.

“If you haven’t walked the walk before, a first time … is really good, you can just see what our hills are like when it comes to walking,” he said. “Last year there were more than 170 people participating and so this year we are hopefully expecting a lot more.”

The Pilbara Regiment and Karratha Vet will supply water for participants.

For people wishing to take part, they need to meet and register at the Pilbara Institute eastern carpark.

They will be taken by bus to the Karratha Visitor Centre for the start of the walk.

Registrations and sign-up will begin at 8am and close at 4pm on the day.
