Local Attractions at Kyotmunga

Kyotmunga Walk Trail
The Kyotmunga walk trail is located adjacent to Kyotmunga Estate (see map) and each year on the last Sunday in July, the Kyotmunga walk takes place.

The walk trail can be accessed via Yozzi Road (off Chittering Valley Road) and parking is available. The trail leads to the Avon Valley National Park, which contains an abundance of natural flora and fauna. The trail has been temporarily closed prior to the road being graded by the Shire of Chittering, but the trail will be available for walkers early in 2007. The trail meanders through an orange orchard (walkers please avoid damaging surrounding private property) through to the Avon Valley National Park. Walkers can follow the trail through the National Park for as long as they are able, or they can continue on to finish at Peace Be Still on Chittering Road. Wendy Gellard from Peace Be Still conducts guided walks on the last Sunday of the month from May through September (contact 9571 8108).

Local accommodation
There is a range of accommodation available in the area for those wanting to spend a longer stay in the Chittering Valley (www.chittering.iinet.net.au). The Chittering Valley Wine Trail, which comprises a group of seven wineries from Kyotmunga Estate in the southernmost part of the Chittering Valley through Bindoon and west to Gingin is well worth considering (www.chitteringvalleywinetrail.com.au).
