Numbat Track (Paruna Wildlife Sanctuary)

Arguably the finest day walk in the Perth Outdoors, the Numbat Track is the longest trail within Paruna Wildlife Sanctuary - an important corridor linking Walyunga and Avon Valley National Parks. The well maintained trail takes walkers up, down and through the valleys of the park, and includes superb walking through Wandoo woodlands, the spectacular Paruna Gorge and offering breathtaking valley views.

Out and Back Loop (Peace Be Still)

Located within Peace Be Still, a private retreat in the Chittering Valley that accepts day visitors, the Out and Back Loop is a 6.5 kilometre walk up the valley slope that briefly crosses the property boundary into Avon Valley National Park. Featuring steep inclines that are sure to get the heart rate up, the trail provides pleasant walking through mature Wandoo woodlands and features lovely valley views.

Sheila Hill Memorial Track (Mt Hallowell Reserve)

Running concurrently with a stretch of the Bibbulmun Track, the Sheila Hill Memorial Track takes walkers via Monkey Rock on the way to the summit of Mt Hallowell. Featuring lush Karri forests, massive granite formations and spectacular views of the Southern Ocean, this is an excellent day walk option for those without the time to complete the William Bay to Denmark stretch of the Bibbulmun Track. 

Bibbulmun Track (WA) - William Bay to Denmark

The second day of an overnight hike on the Bibbulmun Track, this day of walking links Tower Hill in William Bay National Park to the outskirts of the Town of Denmark. Featuring impressively massive granite formations over much of its 20 km, this spectacular and highly varied section takes walkers from coastal heath and sweeping beach vistas to Karri forest and mountain views on Mt Hallowell. One of the Bibbulmun Track's finest.

Bibbulmun Track (WA) - Boat Harbour to William Bay

The first day of an overnight hike on the Bibbulmun Track, the 20 kilometre walk from Boat Harbour to William Bay begins at the sheltered bay of Boat Harbour and traverses coastal cliffs, heathland and beaches on the way to Tower Hill in William Bay National Park. Featuring the infamous 7 kilometre beach walk along Mazzoletti Beach, this is one of the more arduous sections of the track and requires some mental fortitude.
