Cathedral Avenue is a 3.4 km scenic drive along the serene Leschenault Estuary travelling from Buffalo Road in Leschenault to Old Coast Road, Australind.
Although the road has been altered in parts, its famous paperbark trees can still be admired arching over the road in a cathedral-like manner. (Note: the road now slightly bypasses the paperbarks to allow for their protection and a walk and bike path).
Along the way, there are numerous locations to stop for a picnic or scenic view of the Estuary.
Cathedral Avenue is part of the original Old Coast Road which ran from Mandurah to Australind. This road was gradually formed by settlers exploring northwards from Australind and by the 1870s to 1890s mail coaches travelling from Perth to Bunbury followed a track to Pinjarra crossing over to the Coast Road before heading south to Bunbury.
LENGTH: 3.4 kilometres
