May 25, 2023  ·  3 min read

Perth, the vibrant capital of Western Australia, is not only celebrated for its dazzling coastline and metropolitan flair, but also for the untamed beauty that envelops it. Prepare to feast your eyes on a selection of hikes near the CBD that will whisk you away from the urban buzz and into a realm of natural grandeur. Let us unveil the crème de la crème of trails, allowing you to surrender to laps of luxury in the great outdoors. 

Kings Park and Botanic Garden
Just a stone’s throw away from the city centre, Kings Park and Botanic Garden offer an excellent escape into nature without venturing too far. The park boasts several trails that wind through beautiful bushland, providing breathtaking views of the city skyline, Swan River, and the Darling Ranges. The Lotterywest Federation Walkway is a must-do, allowing you to stroll above the treetops and enjoy the tranquil surroundings. 

Bold Park
Located only 15 minutes from Perth’s CBD, Bold Park is a hidden gem offering stunning coastal views and diverse ecosystems. With a range of trails catering to all fitness levels, you can explore the park’s expansive woodlands, wildflower displays (when in season), and panoramic vistas. The Reabold Hill Summit Trail leads to the highest natural point on the Swan Coastal Plain and rewards hikers with magnificent views of the Indian Ocean. 

John Forrest National Park
Situated just 24 kilometres of Perth, John Forrest National Park is a picturesque destination renowned for its bushland, waterfalls, and granite outcrops. The park features an extensive network of trails, including the popular Eagle View Walk Trail, which stretches for 15 kilometres and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding valleys. Keep an eye out for native wildlife, including kangaroos and a variety of bird species. 

Lesmurdie Falls
For a scenic adventure within close proximity to the CBD, head to Lesmurdie Falls in the Perth Hills. A short drive from the city will lead you to a series of trails that wind through the bush, eventually culminating in the awe-inspiring Lesmurdie Falls. The Falls Trail takes you on a 1.5 kilometre journey to witness the cascading waters and offers panoramic views of the coastal plain below. 

Serpentine National Park
Located approximately 55 kilometres south of Perth, Serpentine National Park is a nature lover’s paradise. With its stunning granite formations, pristine forests, and picturesque waterways, this park is a hiker’s dream. The Serpentine Falls Walk is a popular choice, leading you to the impressive Serpentine Falls and providing opportunities for swimming and picnicking in the serene surroundings. 

Why not embrace the allure of Perth’s hiking trails this winter, then surrender to the lap of luxury at QT Perth, a truly extraordinary experience that melds the best of nature and indulgence.
