The Kalamunda to Mundaring Weir section of the Bibbulmun Track features steep rocky terrain, flowing waters, granite boulders, picturesque views over the Mundaring Weir and Lake CY O’Connor plus amazing valley views all combined in a 19.5km hike.
Kicking off at the Bibbulmun Track Northern Terminus (Kalamunda), we will travel through the former golf course that is now known as Jorgensen Park and into Kalamunda National Park. Following the creek line of Piesse Brook downwards we will admire spectacular valley views before we start heading up hill past granite outcrops and boulders and through lush mixed Jarrah forest. Shortly after we pass the Camel Farm the track levels out and stays relatively flat as we pass numerous gorgeous granite outcrops which make excellent vantage points to stop and take in the inspiring views of Paulls Valley!
We’ll stop at Golden View lookout to admire the views of the Mundaring Weir before hiking through Beelu National Park to reach the Weir and Lake CY O’Connor. You will marvel in its beauty and after reading the interpretive signage have an appreciation of the work that went into building this impressive structure regarded as one of the world’s great engineering projects. After crossing the weir, we will pass some large granite boulders before reaching the Mundaring Weir Hotel!
Off The Beaten Track WA will guide you along the Bibbulmun Track, through Piesse Brook and Paulls Valley as you take in the views of one the most difficult and scenic sections of this world class trail! The terrain on this section of the Bibbulmun is quite steep and rocky in parts but you will be well supported by Off The Beaten Track WA.
