The Macora Trail, often called the Byford Hills Walk Trail, covers 1.6km or 40 minutes in a loop walk returning via Brown Street, Steven Place and Bradshaw Road. This is a moderate track which beings at Marcora Falls and covers some steep sections but the views make it worth it!
Macora means ‘wet season’ in the local indigenous language. Some of the granite outcrops are thought to be 400 million years old. Wildlife to look for includes blue wrens, red tailed cockatoos, fantails, parrots. Flora in the jarrah and marri forests includes wattles, grasstrees, myrtles, grevilleas, hakeas, and in spring blue lady orchids and fringe lillies. From the high points in the trail there are views over Kwinana and even to Perth. Points of interest include an historic water tank and, beside the quarry face, the site of the old 1914 brickworks.
