About Perth Hills Discovery Centre to Golden View Lookout, Beelu NP
Starting from the Perth Hills Discovery Centre, the Track winds its way through mixed jarrah and banksia forest on the side of the Helena Valley, where you get the first glimpses of Lake CY O'Connor and Mundaring Weir. You then pass the historic Mundaring Weir Hotel and follow a short section of the Golden Pipeline that carries water from Mundaring Weir to the Goldfields near Kalgoorlie.
The Track crosses the Weir wall, then ascends to the Golden View Lookout, with expansive views of the surrounding area. An alternate route at the weir wall, descends to the base of the Weir wall and passes the No.1 Pumping Station Museum and is used when the gates along the weir wall are closed after hours or when maintenance works are in progress.
To start the walk - head toward the amphitheatre surrounded by the buildings. Keeping the animal enclosure on your left and amphitheatre on your right, follow the Bibbulmun Track trail markers.
(For a shorter 8km walk, start and finish at the Mundaring Weir Hotel.)
The 1000km Bibbulmun Track offers a wide range of experiences, from a gentle stroll to enjoy the peace and beauty of the natural environment, to an epic eight-week adventure camping out at the 49 campsites and enjoying the hospitality of nine communities along the way. Those that walk every step of the way can be registered as end-to-enders.
The Track is for walkers only and is signposted with yellow triangular markers symbolising the Waugal, the rainbow serpent of the Aboriginal Dreaming. Follow the direction of the point.
