Mt Cooke is the highest point in the Darling Ranges at 582 metres (1,909 ft), and it is definitely my favourite! Mt Cooke is different from Mt Cuthbert and Mt Vincent. It has a 3km walking track on the ridge of the summit. The views from Mt Cooke are simply spectacular and from here you can […]

Mt Dale Circuit

The Mt Dale Circuit might be short, but what it lacks in distance it certainly makes up for in spectacular views!This trail follows the contours of Mt Dale through jarrah forests featuring scorched grass trees, granite outcrops, an abundance of wildflowers, curious wildlife and awe-inspiring views of the Darling Ranges (even spotting Mt Cooke to […]

Rocky Pools

Rocky Pool Walk is a delightful 5km/1-2hr family friendly trail that commences at the end of Spring Rd, Kalamunda and is a haven of wildflowers and granite boulders!

The views from the top are impeccable and you will easily spot Perth city in the distance, at ground level the size […]

Sullivans to Monadnocks

Sullivans to Monadnocks is arguably the best day hike close to Perth! This 15km/5hr return hike in the Darling Ranges features a variety of scenery, great views from twin peaks and is a fairly challenging section of the Bibbulmun Track. The trail starts at Sullivan Rock which is a giant granite rock covered in delicate […]

Sullivans to Mt Cooke

Mt Cooke is the highest peak in the Darling Ranges and definitely my favourite! Heading South along the Bibbulmun Track from Sullivans Rock for approximately 7kms will lead you to the Mt Cooke campsite. The trail starts off as a wide gravel track then morphs into a narrow bush path. Following the Wagyl through typical […]

The Roleystone Experience

Exploring the unknown is one of the things I really love about hiking! With very limited information available about trails in Roleystone, I was intrigued by The Life of Py’s ‘Roleystone Adventure’ and set out for my own. Now, I can’t be sure exactly which trail I did as we got lost numerous times and […]

The scenery on this hike is very pretty with the banks of the gully lined with lush green foliage, paper-bark trees and a variety of wildflowers. Whilst enjoying the sound of […]
