Immerse yourself into the historical highlights of the Heritage Trail on this 10km journey back in time. John Forrest National Park is one of Australia’s oldest conservation areas and Western Australia’s first national park. Located in the Darling Ranges about half an hour’s drive from Perth, the park offers excellent hiking options along the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail.
Enjoy magnificent views over the city, the rush of water on one of the multiple waterfalls during winter, and the secret history of the railway, ‘fairy villages’, and ‘swimming pool’ of the early 1900’s.
There’s plenty of wildlife to observe including many native birds, kangaroos and bandicoots, while the wildflowers colour the landscape in the springtime.
Reflect on your hike while sitting back with a pint of beer, house wine, or soft drink from the “Parky” tavern as your hike concludes.
We head out on a 10km return adventure along the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail, which follows the route of the old Eastern Railway. We will pass through quaint hills community of Parkerville on our way into John Forrest National Park, exploring mini waterfalls, and historic tales of the railway that once was.
