“Great spot.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Great place to go for an outing by car or ride your push bike. A barbie by the creek, wildflowers in season,and much, much more.

“Great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

I love walking here, it's so beautiful and peaceful. You can walk as little or as much as you like. There are great picnic spots for families. Well worth the effort of heading out of town.

“Great views, plenty of experiences”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

This park is huge, with plenty of activities at your fingertips. Try the walk through the old train tunnel (make sure you bring a torch, it's nice and dark!) with the family, or drive in from Great Eastern Hwy and stop for the sight seeing - you can see all of Perth from up here, all the way to the water.

There is a tavern, plenty of places for a BBQ, and many signposted bush walks of various lengths. A great example of the Australian bush, and only half an hour from the Perth CBD.
