  • We've done 15 km trail - it didn't required a lot of physical preparation, since the trail isn't very difficult. However, on the hot day it might be a bit difficult, so remember to bring lots of water...  more »

  • Beautiful National Park. With suitable car parking and some amazing views over North Perth, you can come up here at any time and join the heritage trail and walk to your heart's desire. The road has been relaid and follows the old railway path across the ridge top. Visiting the old railway tunnel, kangaroo pub, waterfalls and much more. Great for a bike ride, run, walk or any thing! It's amazing.
  • Great place for tracking and taking beautiful pictures. Bring water and some food with you to have a little brake during walking. Visit Eagle View platform to see panoramic view of Perth city down below , go through the eirie old tunnel, after that have a glass of ice cold cider at the Tavern located at the car park , prefect finish of the day of walking.
  • So many walks and things to see. Plenty of BBQ areas along with tables, watch out for the hungry wildlife though. Plenty of hiking options from very easy to medium level. Gets very hot in summer but the wild flowers in spring are amazing.
  • A sense of wilderness with good walking tracks. Still that overgrown feel in parts which was awesome. Close to city, amazing with water. The pub is good experience with animals. But the wait on the food was really really bad
  • Absolutely brilliant spot, not exactly easy to get here via public transport, terrific views all the way to the Indian Ocean. Come for the 19th century train tunnel and try to time it with wildflower season.
