Perth's Top 6 Walking Trails -Serenity, One Step at a Time!

Walking + nature are the recipe for serenity. So put on your trekking shoes, step out of your luxury hotel in Perth and enjoy the simpler things in life with a walk along these beautiful trails...


Bold Park

Contrary to the name, Bold Park is for those who are not so bold to venture out far and into tougher terrains. The 437-hectare park is just within 8 kilometres west of Perth's CBD, within 20 minutes distance to the famous Carillon City shopping mall and the COMO The Treasury, Perth hotel. This easy distance means you can comfortably travel to and from your hotel to the park for a morning jog or a leisurely stroll at night; or both!
There are a total of 15 kilometers of walk trails at Bold Park and many of these consist of fully formed surfaces. These trails are perfect if you're new to the whole trekking or jogging scene. Some of the best highlights of Bold Park include great coastal and city views, traces of bush land, the melody of bird life and the wildflowers.

Difficulty: Easy
Best Time to Go: April to November.


Ghost House Trail

Not for you if you're scared of ghosts! LOL just kidding. The Ghost House Trail is a beautiful 10 kilometre loop walk around the Yanchep National Park's wetlands. The park is about 40 minutes away to the north of Perth City. And if you're wondering if it's too deserted not to worry there is a shelter to run to if the ghosts come at ya! Again, just kidding! There's also a washroom should you need to use it.
The trail is easy going and flat, and the best thing about it is that while you're walking emus and kangaroos might come say "BOO!" No for real, there are kangaroo and emu sightings along this trail. Other than this, highlights of the Ghost House Trail include views over the wetland, fantastic limestone formations and beers to be had to celebrate with at the finish of the trail!

Difficulty: Moderate.
Best Time to Go: During winter and spring.


Eagle's View Trail

There are quite a lot who claim that this is the best trail in all of Perth, but we'll leave you to decide for yourself. Located 30 minutes east of the city, the Eagle's View Trail at the John Forrest National Park is a bit challenging. The 15 kilometre trail is best attempted while wearing good shoes as there are more than a few slippery rocks and bits along the pea gravel hills. The highlights of this trail include spectacular views of the coast, wildflowers in spring and the beautiful spots along the Jane Brook.

Difficulty: Moderate to challenging loop walk.
Best Time to Go: During late winter and early spring.


Sullivan's Rock to Monadnocks Campsite

Considered by almost all to be the best hike near Perth City, the Sullivan's Rock trail to Monadnocks Shelter on the Bibbulmun Track, is a great day out to be enjoyed with friends or even solo. This has one of the best campsites so come prepared to spend a night of sleeping under the stars. The biggest attraction of the 12 kilometre trail is that it gives you the opportunity to spot the cute little critters known as echidnas.

Difficulty: Moderate to Challenging.
Best Time to Go: During June to October.
