Close to Perth, the Perth Hills Discovery Centre is a great place to begin your park experience. Immerse yourself in the beautiful jarrah marri forest. Many of the walking and cycle trails in the area either start from or pass close by the Perth Hills Discovery Centre and are well sign posted. You may even spot a friendly kangaroo, one of the many native animals that can be seen around the centre.
Back to Park
The historic Mundaring Weir is a short drive, or half hour walk south along the famous Bibbulmun Track, or you may like to hike the Bibbulmun Track north to the Ball Creek hut for lunch.
Nearer to Nature Community
This program provides fun, interactive, nature-based activities for groups, families and individuals who are keen to enhance their enjoyment, knowledge and interest in the natural environment within the tranquillity of the forest.
Nearer to Nature Schools
Some of DBCA’s Nearer to Nature Schools programs are also run out of the Perth Hills Centre, offering schools, teachers, students and their communities a variety of educational programs and resources designed to foster awareness, appreciation and understanding of the natural environment and traditional Aboriginal culture
