Moderate track
Starting from Lake Jualbup, Shenton Park, this walk takes you to Swanbourne Beach, traversing in-between urban and bush settings. The walk commences at Lake Jualbup before it enters the urban setting. After a small section of bushwalking through the Shenton Bushland, you can enjoy the serene environment of Bold Park Botanic parks and the wild variety of wildflowers there before you reach Swanbourne. There are informational signs along the track about the flora and indigenous cultural heritage (6 Noongar seasons and their connection with nature). You can follow the triangular marks along the trail. Additionally, dogs are welcomed, but they have to be on a leash. There are trains to Subiaco, and then you can take the bus 97 to stop 17520 or bus 950 from Wellington Street in Perth, alighting at stop 26201 near Rosalie Park. 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.
