Accommodation, Attractions & Events
Follow the twisting roads through the sloping landscape of Perth Hills and you’ll find yourself amongst towering forests of jarrah and eucalyptus trees, surrounded by untouched, rich bushland. Look out over beautiful vistas from the best vantage points Perth has to offer.
Continuing along these winding roads will lead you into the small towns of Armadale, Kalamunda and Mundaring, which are scattered across the wide expanses of the region. Each has its own unique history, subculture and local feel, captured throughout the town centres, galleries and museums. There is a strong art culture prevalent in the region, with a variety of exhibitions, weekend market stalls and open artist studios all showcasing the inspired local talent.
Surrounding these modest hubs of the region lie enormous national parks, spectacular vistas over the valleys and bushland stretching all the way to the city skyline, visible from the region’s higher peaks.
There are plenty of nature based activities to enjoy whilst you take in the breathtaking views, such as bush walking, cycling, canoeing, swimming, horse riding and rock climbing. As your appetite grows, you may find yourself at one of the twenty-plus wineries scattered throughout the region, which offer boutique wines to accompany delicious plates to be enjoyed overlooking beautiful vineyards. This sense of tranquillity only continues, with a range of luxurious day and eco spas providing indulgent relaxation amongst the leafy, green surrounds.
A trip to Perth Hills offers the country escape you’ve been promising yourself, and located so close to the CBD, you can leave almost immediately.
