With over fifteen kilometres of walking and bridle trails and ten different lookouts with expansive city and coastal views, Bold Park offers a memorable visitor experience at any time of year.

Bold Park, currently 437 ha, is the largest remaining bushland remnant in the urban area of the Swan Coastal Plain. Kings Park is only slightly smaller, covering 400 ha. The educational value of Bold Park is highly rated because of the diverse flora, fauna and fungi, and its coastal location in the metropolitan area.

The tuart-banksia woodlands and limestone heaths support a number of habitats for wildlife, including hundreds of species of insects. Together, fungi, insects and plants provide the basis of a complex food chain involving all the amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals in the bushland. Over 1,000 native and non-native species of flora, fauna and fungi have been identified in Bold Park.

Bold Park provides important linkages to other bushland areas in Perth, including the coast and remnant vegetation within Commonwealth land (Campbell Barracks) to the south-west; Perry Lakes, Wembley Golf Course and Herdsman Lake to the north; Shenton Park Bushland and Kings Park to the east; and Cottesloe Golf Course and Lake Claremont to the south. These linkages provide corridors for fauna to move between these areas, particularly when seeking refuge from disturbance events.

Bold Park bushland provides a rare opportunity to experience relative 'wilderness' in Perth's urban area. The network of walking and bridle trails provide excellent opportunities for bushwalks, nature study and exercise.

We love to hear from people who've been on our Western Australian trails, so it would be most appreciated it if you wanted to leave a review.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
