The Darlington Boulders area is located approximately 30km east of Perth in a side valley of the Helena River. Follow your street directory to the junction of Mills Rd and Nelson Rd in Darlington. From here follow Nelson Rd for 500m south (No Through Road) towards Darlington Winery. Park in the large bay on R, just before the winery entry gate, taking care not to block the firebreak access.
Walk 30m toward the winery and when the road turns L to the entrance, continue straight ahead and around a pole gate. The total walk in to the main area takes 25 minutes.
