3 Family Friendly Bushwalks In Perth

September 15, 2023

Looking for an active outdoor adventure for the long weekend or school holidays? Here’s three of my family friendly favs!
.

BIBBULMUN TRACK, Mundaring

This bush walk winds its way through the mixed jarrah and banksia forest of Beelu National Park and has some gorgeous weir and valley views.
  • Start at Perth Hills Discovery Centre and follow the Bibbulmun Track towards the Mundaring Weir
  • The Track is signposted with yellow triangular markers symbolising the Waugal, the rainbow serpent of the Aboriginal Dreaming

.

BELLS RAPIDS RIVER WALK, Swan Valley

The 2.75km loop trail follows the river, before climbing the hill with some steep rocky sections to navigate. I haven’t done the full loop with kids, just meandered along the river for a bit, then stopped for picnic and headed back.
  • Aim to get there before 930am on weekends – being an easily accessible, grade 1 and family friendly walk makes this a super popular place!!
  • Pack a little picnic. There’s heaps of great flat rocks to stop and sit along the walk.

JOHN FORREST NATIONAL PARK, Hovea

Close to Perth, scenic views, walk and bicycle trails, historic buildings, lots of wildlife – all you need to do is pack a picnic!
  • Aim to get there before 9am on weekends – being an easily accessible and family friendly makes this a super popular place
  • There’s heaps of picnic tables to sit and take in the serenity.
  • Plenty of walks to choose from (2km-16km). We literally just meandered around the main picnic area (which also has a playground) and ‘adventured’ under and over the bridge.

Share this with your bushwalking buddies and hook up a long weekend or school holiday adventure.
