Guests can also walk to a unique historic icon, which is closely connected to the history of Clover Cottage. The complete walk take approximately two and a half hours.
Clover Cottage was built in 1875 from jarrah timber that was taken from the property. It was was before the time of industrial machinery in the southwest forests and using only hand tools. Bullocks and horses would have helped with moving the timber.
