Tour Description

The Helena Pipehead Walk is a moderately easy hike through Kalamunda National Park. The trail follows the pipeline past the picturesque Helena Pipehead Dam, up some steep but short rocky hills to stunning sweeping views of Piesse Brook. Granite boulders and Wandoo woodlands are a real lovely feature of this Perth trail.

Join us for a sunrise hike as we enjoy the picturesque views of the Helena River Valley and Helena Pipehead Dam. We will take a short detour and head off the beaten track to enjoy a delicious morning tea at a secret location with a view.

Every day starts with a sunrise, but it’s what we do before it sets that matters!
