This route can get quite steep and rocky, so consider going elsewhere if it's wet. Trekking boots are recommended. This signage isn't great, so make sure to download a map ahead of time. Although a forested area, there are long sunny stretches, so bring sunscreen.Show more

This is a beautiful trail that takes you to the reservoir walls, and follows the Bickley Brook. Beautiful scenery, it is great during the start of spring when there is plenty of water and wildflowers around.Show more

A long scenic ride in the Perth Hills with gentle gradients on 90% wide old railway track, 10% road. There is plenty to see and do along the way This old railway track provides a long circular loop in the Perth Hills. The surface is good and the gradients easy. The abundance of cafes and interesting scenery in the John Forrest make this a great family trail. If you are feeling brave you can also cycle through the longest railway tunnel in Western Australia. Once on the trail navigation is easy. Simply follow the wide, well surfaced track. The only major hill is the long steady climb from Greenmount to Mundaring. Take care when crossing roads. At these junctions there are signposts with distances to the towns and roads. There are plenty of great places to stop for lunch, or it is possible to ride shorter sections. The area around John Forrest is particularly scenic. The Heritage Rail Trail also connects to the Munda Biddi (heads south from Mundaring) and the Kep Track (East towards Northam from Mount Helena).Show more

The Savannah Way is one of Australia's iconic multi-day adventure drives, and a real road-tripping journey into the outback. The route links Tropical Northern Queensland in Cairns with Broome in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. With this road-trip, it is ideal to keep a loose itinerary that allows for extended stays at destinations and towns which each have their own great surrounding areas and detours to set off and explore. The entire shares the transitions through diverse terrain, from low grassland expanses of the tropical savanna, to rocky outback country. Starting through Queensland's Gulf, stops might include the Atherton Tablelands, Undara Lava Tubes, Boodjamulla National Park, Chillagoe, Mount Surprise, Georgetown, Forsayth, Croydon, Normanton, Karumba and Burketown. Next, the central section of the route passes through what is referred to as the 'Top End' of the Northern Territory, where it is likely you'll make stops at Timber Creek, Katherine, Daly Waters, Cape Crawford and Borroloola. Be sure to spend some time at the spectacular Kakadu National Park, which is a World Heritage-listed park not only for its ecological and geological significance, but for being a living cultural landscape for Aboriginal people for more than 50,000 years (https://www.alltrails.com/parks/australia/northern-territory/kakadu-national-park). Swing by some of the natural hot springs too, including the Bitter Springs (Mataranka), Tjuwaliyn (Douglas) and the Katherine Thermal Pools. In the Kimberley region of Western Australia, some stops to make would include Fitzroy Crossing, Derby, Halls Creek, Kununurra and Wyndham. To name just a few, some beautiful sites to visit include Windjana Gorge, Tunnel Creek National Park, Wolfe Creek Crater, Parrys Lagoon Nature Reserve, Litchfield National Park, and several Indigenous artist communities and art galleries would be worth the stop.Show more

The Swan Estuary Marine Park and adjacent nature reserves are comprised of estuarine lands and waters within Perth's beautiful Swan River. These areas encompass mudflats, seagrass beds and intertidal vegetation such as sedges and saltmarsh, which provide many different habitats for a host of animals. A wide variety of birds use the Swan Estuary Marine Park including shorebirds (migratory and non-migratory), wading birds, waterbirds and seabirds. The most internationally significant of these are the migratory birds. They come from as far afield as Asia, Mongolia and Siberia, travelling up to 3000km in one trip. About 33 of these species are protected under the Japan-Australia, China-Australia and the Republic of Korea-Australia Migratory Bird Agreements. Notable among these species is the tiny red-necked stint. Although only 30-40g, these birds annually fly thousands of kilometers from their breeding areas in Arctic Siberia to the warm mudflats of the Swan Estuary. Different species of migratory birds arrive at varying times between August and November. Because other wetlands are too full of water at this time of the year, the Swan Estuary Marine Park (and the coast) are among their first resting and feeding spots. The estuarine mudflats contain high concentrations of food which replenish the energy of the exhausted birds after their long flight south. Some of the birds will be sporting their breeding plumage when they arrive. Others will moult to their breeding glory in February. Most migratory birds will have left the Perth region by late March.Show more

A fantastic singletrack loop in the Perth Hills built to IMBA standards. Is this the best trail in the West? The Kalamunda Circuit is a community project in partnership between The Department of Environment and Conservation, Lotteries WA, The Department of Sport and Recreation, The West Australian Mountain Bike Association and you, the Mountain Bike Community. Type of Trail Based on the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) grading for trail difficulty the trail is a blue square trail with black diamond Technical Trail Features (TTFs). It is designed for intermediate to advanced XC riding with log rides, log roll overs, jumps, rock gardens, ladders, drop offs and lots of single track. There can be unavoidable obstacles up to 400mm high. All obstacles bigger than the blue rating will have B lines such as jumps and black diamond TTFs. RIDING THE TRAIL Although nominally a dual direction trail, most riders seem to agree that it is better ridding in clockwise direction. There are DEC car parks on Mundaring Weir Rd at the western end and at the Dell at the eastern end. Alternatively, a safer place (from car crime) to park in the Calamunnda Camel Farm on Pauls Valley Rd. They welcome mountain bikers, the trail passes through their car park, the food is great and they even stock a few bike spares. The trail itself is an IMBA rated Blue trail. None of the climbs are too steep or arduous and their are lots of fun swoopy bermed downhills; grins guaranteed. The trail is fully signposted and maps are available to download from the WAMBA website.Show more
