Length: 5.6 mi • Est. 2 h 55 m
Perth Hills National Parks Centre to Golden View Lookout and back The Bibbulmun Track is one of the world's great long distance walk trails, stretching 1000km from Kalamunda on the outskirts of Perth, to the historic town of Albany on the south coast. The return day walk through Beelu National Park traverses 6.2km (12.4km return) of the Bibbulmun Track. Starting from the Perth Hills National Parks Centre, the Track winds its way through mixed jarrah and banksia forest on the side of the Helena Valley, where you get the first glimpses of Lake CY O'Connor and Mundaring Weir. You then pass the historic Mundaring Weir Hotel and follow a short section of the Golden Pipeline that carries water from Mundaring Weir to the Goldfields near Kalgoorlie. The Track crosses the Weir wall, then ascends to the Golden View Lookout, with expansive views of the surrounding area. An alternate route at the weir wall, descends to the base of the Weir wall and passes the No.1 Pumping Station Museum and is used when the gates along the weir wall are closed after hours or when maintenance works are in progress. The Bibbulmun Track offers a wide range of experiences, from a gentle stroll to enjoy the peace and beauty of the natural environment, to an epic eight week adventure camping out at the 49 campsites and enjoying the hospitality of nine communities along the way. Those that walk every step of the way can be registered as end-to-enders. Show more

This is a short walk along the lower part of the Swan River. You can start at either Bicton Baths (parking off Braunton or Phipps st) or Park near Henry Jeffery Oval on Jerrat St. There are riverside paths for much of the way and once you pass the limestone cliffs of Blackwall Reach you can follow the foreshore - especially at low tide. There are some nice lookouts along the top of Blackwall Reach - a favorite place for people to jump off into the river. Take care as people regularly come a cropper and end up getting hauled out. Once you reach Point Walter you can walk out on the sandbar/spit - again best at low tide - see tide times for Bicton. To the local Aborigines the Blackwall Reach/Point Walter area is known as Jenalup or Dyundalup. The most sacred part of the area is the cliffs along Blackwall Reach. In aboriginal culture it was traditionally a place for women and children (N. Nannup, pers. comm.). Before white settlement the Beeliar family group (clan) occupied the area. The Beeliar clan is part of the Whadjuk, being one of the 14 language groups, which occupy the Nyungar region in the South-West of WA. One of the many dreaming trails which run along the Swan River passed through the area now known as Point Walter and Blackwall Reach. The Swan River is highly significant to the Nyungar people, as, in the dreaming, the river was made by the Waugal rainbow serpent. The dreaming trail on the southern side of the river is the Yorga (women’s) trail and the men’s trail is found on the northern side. The sand bar, which stretches out from the point, is the connection between these two trails (C. Pitulej, pers. comm.). In the summer months the large variety of plants and animals in the area provided the Aborigines with an abundance of food and other resources such as string made from the native wisteria (Hardenbergia comptoniana) and gum from the marri (Corymbia calophylla - formerly Eucalyptus calophylla). Blackwall Reach Reserve has been Crown land since the late 1800’s.  Commander L. S. Dawson R. N. Admiralty Surveyor named the area Blackwall Reach in 1896 – probably after Blackwall Reach on the Thames River near Greenwich. In the early 1900’s, the Melville Road Board (now Melville City Council) received complaints regarding the “neglected and unimproved state” of Point Walter. From 1907 to 1912, negotiations ensued with the Minister for Lands for the Melville Road Board to take control of the reserve. The Melville Road Board soon decided that land communication with Point Walter was  essential since river steamers did not provide an adequate service and the road to Point Walter was “little better than a bush track” (Uren 1975). In 1915 a tram service was established to Point Walter. It was not a successful operation. The service rarely showed a profit except in the summer months (Uren 1975). The tram service did bring Point Walter to life, however. It became a popular picnic spot and restaurants and a dance floor were established. Old residents recall the tram still running in the early 1950’s. It was probably closed down soon after this time. Concrete foundations at the northern end of the reserve are all that remains of a tram stop.Show more
