Greenmount, Western Australia

Greenmount image

Greenmount and its neighbouring conservation area, John Forrest National Park, have held a special place the hearts of Perth people since the late 1800s, when the area was declared Western Australia's first national park. Still a favourite daytrip from the city, it's just a 30 minute drive north-east along the Great Eastern Highway to reach the Perth Hills community of Greenmount, and another ten minutes into the Darling Ranges to enter John Forrest National Park. The best way to get there and explore its 1,500 plus hectares of wilderness is to walk or cycle the Railway Heritage Trail and then take a detour onto the many bushwalking trails that crisscross the park. Wandering through marri and wandoo woodlands, passing quiet pools, spectacular waterfalls and heathlands filled with spring wildflowers (in season), you can take in magnificent vistas of the Swan coastal plain and city beyond. It's a must-snap stop for photographers and bird watchers, while lovers of the performing arts might also be interested in the productions of the Darlington Theatre Players at the Marloo Theatre in Greenmount. Spend a few days immersing yourself in the laidback Perth Hills lifestyle, and book a night or two at one of the area's budget or mid-range accommodation options.
