Starting from the Calamunnda Camel Farm on Paulls Valley Road, Paulls Valley, this walk leads to Hewett's Hill Hut and back via the Bibbulmun Track. This is a fantastic 5km beginner-friendly adventure along the iconic Bibbulmun Track, one of the world's great long distance walk trails, stretching 1000km through the heart of the scenic South West of Western Australia. This section of the Bibbulmun Track winds through the towering tuart forests and magnificent jarrah trees of Beelu National Park, with beautiful birdlife and abundant native wildlife to be seen along the way. The sheer amount of wildflowers in the park makes the environment feel lively, and orchids play a big part in that. The Calamunnda Camel Farm is very popular on weekends, with many walkers stopping in for a coffee and a snack before or after setting out for a day of adventure. The farm also offers camel rides and other attractions to the general public. You'll make it to Hewet's Hill shortly after the farm. It is named after Peter Hewett, a man that was vital in getting the Bibbulmun Track built in the early days. Set up on a hill, the campsite has a lovely outlook over a gully in jarrah forest, and facilities include a three-sided timber shelter, long drop toilet, picnic tables and a rainwater tank that usually has water. If you're planning on staying overnight then be sure to bring a tent, as this is a very popular campsite given its easy access and short distance from various access points. This is an easy walk along a relatively flat trail with a slight incline on the return walk, suitable for beginners and families with kids. The trail is well signed, with the yellow triangular Waugal markers providing very clear directional information. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the end of Helena Valley Road, Gooseberry Hill, this walk takes you on a circuit through Kalamunda National Park via the Helena River Walk. The first part of the hike follows a hardened road before veering off onto a gravel track that takes you over a steel bridge and uphill to beautiful valley views. A short detour at the steel bridge allows you to explore the nearby creek and gauging station, a delightful spot in Winter. After enjoying the views of the river, the trail continues uphill along an old vehicle track through the lush jarrah forest that fills the valley, complete with granite boulders, wildflowers and grass trees. The valley views keep getting better, and as you reach the crest of the hill the Lower Helena Pipehead Dam and its pumping facility come into view. The trail continues alongside the Pipehead Dam then descends close to the river, offering great views across the water, where you may be lucky enough to spot black swans and other bird life. Leaving the river, the trail provides picturesque valley views of Piesse Brook as you climb a moderately steep hill, back up the valley and into wandoo woodlands. The trail eventually levels out to a flat, easy going walk as it returns to the start of the loop. The trail is comfortable and wide, but it can be quite rocky and steep in sections. There are no obvious trail markers or signage so it is important to follow the trail map closely, as it is easy to find yourself on a different trail. With picturesque river and valley views, granite boulders, wildflowers and wandoo woodlands, this is a great Perth trail waiting for you to explore. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
