perth hills

To the east of Perth you’ll find pristine natural bush, wildflowers, forests, waterfalls and spectacular views. If you’re looking for something a little more ‘man made’ there are art galleries and historic sites to explore, wine trails to follow, restaurants and cafes to cater to every food fantasy, day spas, open-air cinemas and fabulous outdoor concert amphitheatres.

30 minutes east of Perth is Kalamunda; a special ‘home in the forest’ that offers a true country town experience. Here you’ll find a wonderful range of unique shops as well as restaurants, cafes, places of historical interest, scenic parks and spectacular vistas. Explore the Bickley and Carmel Wine Trail to find hand crafted award-winning wines, organic chocolates, jarrah honey, fresh flowers and a range of fresh fruit and vegetables. Kalamunda is home to the northern terminus of the Bibbulmun Track, one of the world’s great long distance walking tracks and the start of the Munda Biddi off-road bike trail.

Located only 30 minutes south east of Perth, Armadale boasts a rich cultural heritage, breathtaking bushland complete with walk trails, a wide range of quality accommodation, boutique wineries, award-winning restaurants, beautiful art galleries and more. You can choose from a variety of activities from a vigorous walk along one of the many bush trails, a scenic drive through the hills, relaxing at one of the numerous cafes and restaurants, swimming or canoeing. Armadale offers something to suit everyone.
