Burns Beach to Mullaloo Beach
Starting from the car park opposite Burns Beach Cafe at the end of Ocean Parade, Burns Beach, this walk takes you past Iluka Foreshore Reserve and the Ocean Reef Boat Harbour, to Mullaloo Beach and back. From Burns Beach, a multi-use pathway takes you through the dunes and along the rocky cliffs of Perth's coastline. There are several small beaches, lookouts, parks, picnic areas, and rest stops along the way. Keep an eye out for rare bird species, sea lions, dolphins and rays and many more animals. Interpretive signs along the way provide insights into the native flora, fauna and history of the area. This walk can either be fully completed in a day or divided into smaller sections. Head south from Burns Beach towards Iluka Foreshore Park. If you prefer to walk or cycle further, a round trip to Ocean Reef Marina or even Mullaloo Beach will certainly give you a challenge. The multi-use pathway is popular with walkers, joggers and cyclists, so it's important to keep left and be aware of any overtaking bicycles. The gradient is a little hilly, but easy enough if you take it at your own pace. Mornings are a great time to walk here, before the sea breeze comes in, although an evening walk can be rewarded with a beautiful sunset. Walk the coastal path, relax on the white sand beaches, barbecue in the grassed parks, or just sit atop the limestone cliffs and enjoy a spectacular Indian Ocean sunset. 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.
