Tour Overview

Embark on an unforgettable journey through the breathtaking landscapes of Western Australia’s first national park, John Forrest National Park, with our Ultimate Collection of John Forrest National Park. Prepare to be captivated by the untouched beauty and rugged bushlands that await you on this incredible 10 km adventure.

Our expert guides will lead you through the highlights of John Forrest National Park, allowing you to immerse yourself in its natural wonders. The adventure begins as we venture into the iconic 340-meter-long Swan View tunnel, a fascinating feat of engineering that is sure to leave you in awe. As we emerge from the tunnel, prepare to be mesmerized by the cascading waters of the National Park waterfall, a true hidden gem nestled within the park.

Continuing on our journey, we make our way to the glorious Eagle View Lookout, where panoramic vistas of the surrounding landscapes unfold before your eyes. Take a moment to soak in the breathtaking views and capture stunning photographs as you appreciate the vastness and grandeur of the park.

Springtime brings an added delight to this tour, as we discover the wonders of the local wildflowers in full bloom. Marvel at the vibrant colors and intricate designs of these delicate blooms, creating a picturesque backdrop for your hike. Along the way, our knowledgeable guides will transport you back in time, regaling you with fascinating stories of the 1930s boom time that shaped this fantastic National Park.

The journey doesn’t end there, as we uncover the secrets of the past, including the enchanting ‘fairy villages’ and the remnants of the early 1900s ‘swimming pool.’ These historical artifacts serve as a reminder of the park’s rich heritage and add an extra layer of intrigue to your adventure.

Keep your eyes peeled throughout the hike, as John Forrest National Park is home to a diverse range of native wildlife. From kangaroos gracefully hopping across the trail to elusive bandicoots scurrying through the underbrush, you’ll have the opportunity to spot these fascinating creatures in their natural habitat.

For those seeking an extended exploration, consider adding an optional extension to your tour. By selecting the extension at checkout, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the picturesque Glenbrook Dam and discover an additional hidden waterfall. With an extra 4 km added to your ultimate collection tour, this extension promises to elevate your experience even further, offering more enchanting sights and unforgettable moments.

Join us on the Ultimate Collection of John Forrest National Park Guided Hike and embark on a journey that will leave you with cherished memories and a deep appreciation for the natural wonders of Western Australia. Immerse yourself in the tranquility of this pristine wilderness, and let The Hike Collective guide you through an unforgettable adventure.

Additional Information

Toilets are available at your start point and end point of the trail. With a short 5 minute drive up the hill, you can come across some of the best cafes in the Hills! We love the Lazy Corner in Mundaring.
All national park fees are payable upon arrival.
This is $15 per vehicle or free if you have a parks pass.
We recommend carpooling or purchasing a parks pass if you enter a National Park multiple times per year.
There is ample parking and we recommend parking near the John Forrest Tavern in the main carpark. We will be meeting next to the main toilet block and trail signage.
We have taken the best bits of John Forrest National Park and partnered them with the easiest trails! This is the best of both worlds, and although longer in distance, the trail itself is very walkable. No bushwalking or hiking experience required.
No-shows and cancellations received within 48 hours of hike departure will incur a 100% cancellation fee.

Cancellations within 2-7 days prior will incur a 50% cancellation fee. Cancellations received over 7 days in advance will receive a full refund or credit towards another hike experience. Please note that Rezdy fees are non refundable. Guests can transfer their booking to a friend with no penalty but must advise The Hike Collective so we can forward all booking information to the new attendee.

If The Hike Collective cancels an event due to weather or danger in any way, your ticket will automatically be moved to the new date, or you will be eligible to transfer amounts paid to another tour or receive a full refund.
