Mt Chudalup and D’Entrecasteaux National Park

Mount Chudalup, an ancient rock form in the karri forest promises some spectacular views to anyone who reaches the summit. Seeing as we were staying at a local camp ground, we planned to cycle 11 kilometres to the trail head and hike to the summit. We set out reasonably early taking advantage of some good cycling conditions which means low light, no wind and less cars on the road. Our backpacks stocked ...

Mundaring MTB trails to Lake Leschenaultia

Easing our way into a summer of riding, we embarked on a fun cycle to Lake Leschenaultia using the mountain bike trail network from Mundaring. Lake Leschenaultia is a man made lake set in native West Australian bush land with camping and recreational facilities. Interestingly the lake was built in 1897 as a dam called Chidlows Well, for maintaining the steam engine trains that ran along the Eastern railway between Fremantle and ...

Cross Country Trail at The Goat Farm

Making use of an ever so rare opportunity of both of us having Monday off work, we made our way with the bikes to the Goat Farm Mountain Bike Park bright and early.  I wish I could hold onto the feeling of no work on a Monday, however that said it was just as difficult to wake up so early and in this instance, we brewed our large stovetop coffee maker. Begin ...

Cycle the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail

We've wanted to experience the Railway Reserves Heritage trail for a while now and with a promise of flowing waterfalls thanks to a rather generous winter season we thought it was perfect timing to put our plans into action. The 41 km trail loop traces the old eastern railway line, passing through neighbourhoods grown from early settlement towns and the state’s John Forrest National Park. Offering glimpses into Western Australia’s past, ...

Mountain Bike Park close to Perth CBD

Not letting an unlucky incident impede future fun at the Goat Farm Mountain Bike Park, we decided to return and bring along the camera to capture some sections of the park. The Goat Farm which isn't a farm at all is located in Greenmount National Park  and within close proximity to the city of Midland. It's a small mountain bike park but jam packed with skill challenging riding. Winter has encouraged ...

Mountain Bike Morning – Mundaring Weir Hotel to Camel Farm

Watching the weather all week and hoping for a break of rain, we were super excited when that day came over the weekend. And so we loaded the bikes into the car and headed up to the Kalamunda Mountain Bike trails. We soon changed our plans thinking a cross country ride might be better given the rainfall and the chance of encountering slippery jumps. Fortunately Kalamunda and the surrounding Mundaring area offers plenty of ...

Nature activities galore in Pemberton!

Pemberton is located in the greater southern area of Western Australia’s south west. It’s a steady drive of around 4 hours from Perth and the highlight becomes the winding drive though some beautiful small country towns along the South West Highway. I couldn't really tell you my favourite town because they are all worth stopping in at and I wrote a post about it here. The further south from Perth city we venture, ...
