Come join us as we explore one of the best-kept secrets in Perth - the serene yet stunning Chittering Valley.  At just 45 minutes from the city, you'll feel like you've travelled to a whole new world! 


We'll meet at the front of the Golden Grove Citrus Orchard at 8:30am for introductions and to organise car pooling to Blackboy Ridge from here (some cars will remain at the Orchard, as we will return for the second part of our activity).  Once at Blackboy Ridge, we'll walk up to the lookout, enjoying sensational views of the valley from the other side. We'll explore the undulating ridge and absolutely stunning wildflowers as we circle back around to our cars, covering a total walking distance of 3.5km.  We then jump back in the cars and convoy back to the Orchard Grove Cafe for morning tea (own expense)


After morning tea, we briefly stop into the packing shed before heading out through the picturesque citrus orchard, perhaps picking a juicy mandarin to enjoy along the way. From here, it's a lovely 6.5km circuit walk heading up to Avon Valley National Park taking time to turn around and marvel at the stunning views of the valley. We'll enjoy the towering grass trees, wandoo, powder barks and ancient zamias to the sounds of the abundant birdlife. Once in the park we'll find a place to stop, relax and eat our lunch as stories of a legendary bushranger will unfold.  Moondyne Joe called this area home in the mid 1800's and was more famous for his cunning escapes from jail than the petty crimes that landed him there ... our Guide will fill you in!!

This is definitely "the road less travelled" and it's right on our doorstep! If you have walking poles you might like give them a bit of a workout on this one as some of the slopes can be challenging.
