The Beeliar Regional Park consists of two chains of wetlands comprised of 26 lakes and numerous wetlands stretching 25km along the coast and covering an area of approximately 3400 hectares. The Henderson cliffs are contained within the western section of the park.  These cliffs are composed of Tamala limestone, which has formed from wind blown dunes where sedimentation has occurred and water has percolated through forming carbonate underneath.

The first 100m of the footpath is sealed and therefore wheelchair accessible from the car park to the lookout. There is an aternative Grade 3 track which winds from the lookout north and back to the car park for 200 metres. There is a path which crosses Cockburn Road and meets up (after one kilometre) with the Mt Brown car park.

Very short little walk, paved all the way to the viewing platform. Then you can walk a little loop back to the carpark. The views towards Garden Island are beautiful. Just don't look left towards Kwinana which is very ugly during day.

Great little trail. Fantastic views!. Easy and dog friendly. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a gentle little coastal bimble - as long as you're sure footed.

Don't waste your time with this trail. It runs alongside a road due to which the traffic noise takes away from a relaxing, nature walk. The paved trail is on property that advises visitors to remain on the trail itself as the unpaved area may contain unexploded ammunition. So having that at the back of my mind with my kids with me left me feeling very nervous and far from enjoying the walk. I won't go back to this trail.

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.
