Lesmurdie Falls Valley Loop Trail

Lesmurdie Falls Valley Loop Trail
2.8 km
Circuit

Walk
1 h to 2 h

Starting from the Lesmurdie Falls Bottom Carpark at the end of Palm Terrace, Forrestfield, this walk takes you on a circuit within Lesmurdie Falls National Park via the Valley Loop Trail. One of the lesser-used trails in the Lesmurdie Falls area, the Valley Loop Trail is a short 3km circuit taking in parts of the Shoulder Trail, Falls Trail and Foot of the Falls Trail. From the trailhead interpretative sign, the hike initially follows the Foot of the Falls Trail for about 50m before reaching the first directional sign, a large orange post signalling the direction and distance of each trail. For the Valley Loop walk, walkers turn left and make their way across Lesmurdie Brook, starting the ascent up the side of the valley on a steep, narrow and rocky trail. From the top of the valley, there are spectacular views over the Swan Coastal Plain and out to the city, and you can expect to see a sea of colour in spring when the wildflowers are blooming. The trail continues along the northern section of the Valley Loop Trail before descending towards Lesmurdie Brook. Later on, you'll head along Lesmurdie Brook and arrive at the viewpoint, with the help of the pink markers and concrete steps. The second lookout is a little further down and provides breathtaking views of the Swan Coastal Plain and Perth skyline. Take a moment to sit and admire the views with the sounds of the water gushing below before continuing the descent back to the car park along the southern section of the Valley Loop Trail. Lesmurdie Falls is the largest and most impressive of all the waterfalls in Perth. Being able to explore the falls from the top and the base plus admire it from anywhere in the valley makes the Valley Loop Trail one of Perth's best family-friendly walking trails. 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.

Lions Lookout Loop
3.8 km
Circuit

Walk
1 h to 2 h

Starting from the Lions Lookout Carpark off Welshpool Road East, Lesmurdie, this walk takes you on a circuit via the Lions Lookout Walk Trail. This loop is perfect for a quick escape into the bush, providing expansive views over the Perth Coastal Plain and an abundance of wildflowers in spring. The first section is a gentle downhill to the junction where the loop begins, and soon the noise from the road disappears as you immerse yourself in the surrounding bushland. From the junction, the trail climbs steeply to a small plateau with Wandoo trees, then continues through a forest of Jarrah, Casuarina and Banksia trees. After a steep descent out of the forest, the trail is more open country with a slight uphill journey to the junction that forms the loop part of the walk. From there, it's an easy stroll back to the car park, and you will have completed a hike through some lovely bushland with city views. The markers for this trail are light blue, and the first one can be found on the gravel track leading south from the car park. This is a moderately difficult walk, with some steep loose descents and taxing climbs. The steep parts of the track can be slippery, especially when descending, so be cautious. 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 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.

Helena Pipehead Walk
5.1 km
Circuit

Walk
1 h to 2 h

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.
