Day Trippin’ in the Perth Hills

It’s the WA Day weekend, and what better time to explore and celebrate our little part of Western Australia, the Perthfect Hills. From bush-walking to self-drive tours the Perth Hills has something that’s your speed this long weekend.

Bibbulmun Track

Spend the day walking the Bibbulmun Track from Kalamunda to Hewetts Hill Campsite where you will find the first hut on the track. The 20km round hiking trip will take you 6 hours – unless you have support crew who are willing to pick you up and make a detour to the Mundaring Weir Hotel for a celebratory bevvy? Don’t forget sturdy boots, water, and a hat. Discover a walk trail here
