Highlights of the Experience
Western Australia is home to magnificent waterfalls in virtually every corner. Winter to Spring is a wonderful time to visit as the falls are all in full flow and the Wildflowers are starting to bloom. Cooler temperatures mixed with sunshine and some rainfall equals perfect bushwalking weather and although we always enjoy the exercise, the fresh air and the amazing scenery, nothing beats the excitement of listening to, finding and watching a spectacular waterfall.
John Forrest National Park
Visit Western Australia’s first National Park, John Forrest, and be awed by National Park Falls set in Jarrah forest still largely in its natural state. The park has 10 species of native mammal (one declared rare), and 91 species of bird, 23 species of reptiles and 10 species of frogs so there will be plenty of opportunities to spot Native animals in this habitat. The is also a large variety of Wildflowers to explore.
Swan View Railway Tunnel
Walk through the 340 metre long railway tunnel, the only historical train tunnel in Western Australia. Located within John Forrest National Park, learn about significant historical events that occurred between 1896 when the tunnel opened to 1966 when it officially closed, hear about ghostly stories and visit the site of a historic Train Crash where we step back in time and discuss the history of the fatal accident that occurred in 1896.
Whistlepipe Gully, Mundy Regional Park
Enjoy exploring what I think is one of the best hidden gems of Perth Hills. We follow the narrow river as it courses over many cascades and small waterfalls up to a large granite outcrop which offers some of the best views over the swan coastal plain out to Perth city. Visit the foundations of a remarkable house that once stood in this magical little valley, designed, built and occupied during the 1960s.
Lesmurdie Falls National Park
Explore Lesmurdie National Park, home to one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the Darling Range. Such a beautiful sight to see the Lesmurdie Brook cascade impressively over two main drops totalling about 50 metres. The top walk-trails are a great place to see wildflowers and perhaps a local Quenda or two.
Zig Zag Scenic Drive
We finish off the experience with a spectacular drive down the historical Zig Zag which was part of the Upper Darling Range Railway line in Western Australia opening in July 1891 and closing in July 1949. Learn a bit about the timber industry and this icon of Perth Hills.
Please note: This experience is Seasonal & availability will vary each year. The flow of our waterfalls and blossoming of our Wildflowers relies heavily on our rainfall therefore the best time is usually anywhere from June - November each year but even then there really is only a limited time that all the waterfalls are flowing at once. We reserve the right to ammend the itinerary to suit, sometimes substituting one for another or omitting one and spending longer at others.
