One-day self drive

​Mundaring is right on city’s doorstep, an easy 40 minute drive from the centre of Perth. From Roe Highway follow the Great Eastern Highway east, bypassing Midland, and as you begin the climb up Greenmount Hill you feel the change in the air!

Take the turn to John Forrest National Park (the oldest gazetted national park in Western Australia) via Park Road which leads onto Tourist Drive 201 and wind your way through the park then back out onto the Highway.

Shire of Mundaring is rich in history, art and natural attractions, it is a wonderful area for bush walking and cycling. The Munda Biddi Trail starts here, and the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail stretches throughout through the shire.

There are pubs, cafes and galleries, granite outcrops with spectacular views, five national parks, the amazing engineering feat that is Mundaring Weir, the tranquil waters of Lake Leschenaultia and some lovely wineries too! Wildflowers and wildlife abound, the bird life is stunning – red tailed black cockatoos, parrots galore, blue wrens and much more.

Make time to call into Mundaring Visitor Centre, which you will find in the Old School built in 1907. Here you can pick up maps, brochures and information on walk trails, things to do, vineyards, cafes and studios hidden away from the main road.

Complete your circuit by returning via Mundaring Weir Road to Kalamunda (via Tourist Drive 207), down the ZigZag Scenic Drive onto Roe Highway, or, better still, consider staying overnight!

There’s a wide range of accommodation available to suit most budgets, from deluxe forest hideaways, an historic inn and hotel, a motel or perhaps a charming bed and breakfast, self-contained cottage or chalet.
