Fun Facts & Things to Do
Donnybrook has one of the prettiest riverside walks in the area and it starts right in town. It’s an easy,
peaceful path running alongside the Preston River for some 1.8km.
It traverses through a lush river ecosystem encompassing a suspension bridge, weir crossing and incorporates the Preston River Indigenous Walk Trail and the Waugyl Sculpture Park. As you walk along the trail tread softly and see how many different birds and animals you can see.
The Donnybrook Indigenous Sculpture Park (also known as the Waugyl Sculpture Park) is an opportunity to learn about the history and customs of the local indigenous people. It is a combination of clear, informative signage and images which evoke the traditions of the Noongar.
There are a total of 21 places of interest:
1. The symbol of the hand

come in the sky, like the scales on the waugyl’s belly. The waugyl has not forgotten his people – the rain will soon come.”
