The Wardun Beelier Bidi starts at Grant Marine Park, taking in stunning views of Perth's Swan River and the Indian Ocean. It connects remnant bushlands between the Indian Ocean and Swan River. Named in 1797 by Dutch explorer Willem de Vlamingh, the "Swan River" begins in the foothills of the Darling Ranges, and empties into the Indian Ocean in Fremantle Harbour. The rivers of Perth are woven into the Dreaming stories of the local Aboriginal people, the Noongar. In their language the Indian Ocean is known as "Wardun". The Swan River is known as Derbal Yarigan, understood to refer to fresh or brackish water and turtle Dreaming along the river. The literal translation for Derbal Yarigan is Narlak (Swan) Beelier (River). This trail connects through the Shire of Peppermint Grove, named after the trademark peppermint trees, the Town of Mosman Park including the historic Buckland Hill and the beautiful Town of Cottesloe. The walk encapsulates iconic trails on route including; Mosman Park's "Around-the-River Heritage Trail", the Swan Canning Riverpark, Mudurup Noongar Coastal Trail and the Minim Cove Interpretive Trail.

The walk is relatively easy, with fabulous views. As the weather in Perth can be very hot, wear sunscreen and a hat and bring plenty of drinking water. Some water fountains are interspersed; with cafes and barbeque facilities at irregular intervals. This is a dog and cycle friendly path, with bus and train services allowing sections to be walked individually if preferred. Wheelchair accessibility is good along the majority of the route. Please read specifics on the dedicated trip page detailing areas where cycle, pram and wheelchair access is limited or inadequate. Mobile phone coverage is good, enabling download of maps while walking with the free app. With the professional version of the app, maps are available as an offline option. If including the additional Waugal Cave walk, be aware that though a short section, the terrain is uneven and steep

Great urban hike. Took the dog who loved it and walked back along the beach for a lovely paddle. Will certainly be doing it again!

A gorgeously scenic walk taking you through some of Perth's most well-heeled suburbs. Start out walking along Cottesloe's main parade, head across the trainline through it's small arcade of boutiques and cafès, through Peppermint Grove and down to the Swan Rv where you follow a dog-friendly path along the foreshore and back. Pass through bushland, suburbs and strategically located dog-friendly areas amongst a backdrop of stunning scenery. Plenty of drinking water along the way, plus some toilets and the all essential dog poo bags!

Too far for my Japanese Spitz. Had to turn back and make it a 10km walk instead. Definitely going to return to do the whole thing. It was beautiful! Stopped for a cheeky lunch at Vans Cafe. Good decisions were made!

Could you please note that the Noongar name you have given to Buckland hill is incorrect. Dwerda Weelardinup is the name of Cantonment Hill which is where the Navy Signal tower is. The correct name for Buckland Hill is Berrung-Guttuck which I think means place of memory or knowledge but please don't quote me. Check with Prof. Len Collard at Curtin perhaps. Info on the name provided by Daisy Bates from informant Baabur.
