Starting from the Lakeview carpark off Indian Ocean Drive, Yanchep, this walk takes you on a circuit around Loch McNess via the Wetlands Walk Trail. This beautiful, short and easy walk weaves its way around Loch McNess, one of Perth's most important coastal wetlands. Walking in a clockwise direction, a path goes along the banks of Loch McNess, offering lovely views of the wetlands. The birdlife in the area is incredible, and the park is a bird watcher's delight. Being right along the lake, the landscape is very lush, with a large understorey of bracken ferns. The overstorey includes a number of large, mature examples of Jarrah and Tuarts. Take in the natural sights and sounds that surround you and see the yanget (bullrush) used by local Noongar people for food. The gravelly limestone trail is flat and well signposted, with short sections of loose sand. After finishing the loop, it's only a short walk to Chocolate Drops for a coffee or the Yanchep Inn for a refreshing ale or lunch. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the carpark at the end of Lewis Road, Forrestfield, this walk takes you on a circuit along Whistlepipe Gully, returning via the Connor Road Track. Just 30 minutes from the Perth CBD, Whistlepipe Gully is a hidden sanctuary of woodland charm and serene beauty. The scenery on this hike is beautiful, with the gully banks lined with lush green foliage, paper-bark trees and a variety of wildflowers. A stream tumbles down over a rocky, boulder strewn valley, to the coastal plain below the Darling Scarp. Heading out from Lewis Road, Whistlepipe Gully remains a constant companion to the left of the well maintained trail. The path winds through the forest, passing the mysterious ruins of a Japanese-inspired home built by renowned architect Wallace Greenham in 1963. The home was demolished decades ago, but the remains are still interesting to see, especially since they’ve now been overtaken with plants, creeks and a small waterfall. From the ruins, the trail eventually leads to a large granite outcrop, providing spectacular views of the Swan Coastal Plain, with the city of Perth visible in the distance. The trail is well signed with pink triangular markers, as well as white Shire of Kalamunda signs with the top corner painted pink. Despite a lack of stylistic unity in the signage, the trail is fairly straightforward and easy to follow. Although the terrain along the trail is mainly very easy, there are some steep sections on laterite soils that can be slippery. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
