The Perth Hills come alive in the wintertime and there’s a ton of great walking tracks to take advantage of. Noble Falls is a great walk for people of all ages and levels of fitness and is only about an hour drive from Perth in Gidgegannup. The walk itself can take between 1-3 hours, depending on which loop you take and is very easy going. You can expect to stay close to the creek for most of it which is surrounded by trees, very sheltered and provides some great photo opportunities.
Heirisson Island is the perfect place to experience some West Australian wildlife and nature whilst remaining smack bang in the middle of Perth. The Island does represent a bit of a paradox for locals, however. Heirisson Island exists both north and south of the river simultaneously, making it pretty much impossible to navigate.
