The Darling Range near Perth offers a wealth of wonderful but poorly-known bushwalking opportunities for those ready and adventurous enough to explore beyond the Bibbulmun Track. Use GPS waypoints, ‘tracks’ and walk route maps on this site to discover more than 85 excellent circuit day walks in the region – a total of more than 1000km of local walking opportunities in our parks and state forests.

Expansion (2020 onward): WalkGPS is being progressively expanded to include “Adventurous Walks of the South West” beyond the Perth region, in support of a HikeWest (WA peak body) initiative.

A majority of the walks on WalkGPS include cross-country hiking, so proficient navigation skills are needed. The route-finding is more suited to GPS-users than to traditional compass navigation.

A walk to suit you? (examples)

  • #W11 Wundabiniring

    This one is a great introduction to off-track walking in the open wandoo woodlands of the eastern Darling Range. Very different to walking in the jarrah forest. A 14km walk that’s not too challenging for a reasonably fit walker.

  • #M05 Mount Cooke

    This short walk is  a great way to experience the views from the highest of the granite monadnocks of the Darling Range. An easier walk, including about 3.5km on the Bibbulmun Track.

  • #C1 Christmas Tree Well

    Revised 2023 walk route: Mostly off-track but an easy ramble through picturesque, very open, mature wandoo woodlands, with some areas of jarrah forest. Although its within the proposed Russell Conservation Park the area is not protected from likely future bauxite mining. (See Bauxite mining on WalkGPS.)
