Our marvellous meander today is a one way loop, to be enjoyed at a slow, relaxing pace with time for taking photos, searching for wildflowers and absorbing the history of the area.


We head off from the historical Parkerville Tavern, making our way along a peaceful country road passing unique and interesting cottages, homes and guesthouses, lush pastures and colourful plant life. We then enter John Forrest National Park and make our way through jarrah and marri trees passing huge granite outcrops overlooking Jane Brook. 

 

John Forrest National Park is nestled up in the Perth Hills is one of WA’s oldest and its very first National Park, established in 1900. Set in beautiful jarrah and marri forest and still largely in its native state, it commands stunning views from lookout points along its numerous trails. After a wander around the central hub of John Forrest we head back along the very edge of Jane Brook, we traverse the valley floor which is a mystical mass of flooded gums, swamp peppermint and paperbarks. Our return trek takes us along the old railway line, stopping in a beautiful setting we’ll watch Hovea Waterfalls cascade over the undulating face of orange and red rock, with blooms of green moss popping out in places.We pass where the Hovea Station was once located. It’s a gorgeous trail, full of rich history, including a few old metal bridge structures from back in the day. With Parrot bushes in abundance we are treated to the spectacular sight of Red-tailed black cockatoos flying overhead amongst other colourful birdlife.

 

Our return to the historical old Parkerville Tavern, known by locals as ‘The Parky’, we’ll introduce you to its very colourful past. Admiring this grand old hotel, you are invited, should you wish, to join your host for a celebratory drink and say hello to the friendly Emus while enjoying the garden

This was a great walk - beautiful place to walk. Betty is fantastic - there is never any pressure to try and keep up with the group and so I can walk at my own pace - with Betty keeping a close eye out.

The Highlights of The Bibbulmun Track (Ex Perth) WA

Sue was always at hand when we needed her, and the meals were great. Jazz looked after us all day, and I think I got extra attention because I was old, although I think she will agree that I managed OK. And Leonie was just an extra bonus, especially with her i-phone tips.

Flinders Peak - A Tough Summit Flinders Peak Conservation Park QLD

Sat 2nd October 2021 | Chris J

Flinders Peak has been on my bucket list for a few years now and I am so glad that I have finally reached the summit. It is not an easy hike but it is challenging in that it is mostly uphill with a rocky ridge to walk along and many more rocks to climb. I loved it and would do it again. Thanks AW for hosting a great day out. As usual, your guides are welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful.
