Pear Walk climbs gently up hill and down dale over rolling pastures. Most people who do a bit of walking would have no problems doing this trail that leads up to Pear Lookout. Pause for a while and enjoy expansive views over the park and beyond. The stroll takes around 30 minutes and along the way you can admire oaks and numerous other Northern Hemisphere trees, part of Western Australia’s largest arboretum. Many trees are labeled to make identification easy.

The park is worth visiting all year round to really appreciate the seasonal variations. In autumn, groves of deciduous foliage turn vibrant orange, yellow and red. Winter is damp and cool and trees bare limbs are etched against grey or vibrantly blue skies. Spring heralds budding flowers, green countryside along with birds and insects. Summer is hot and leafy trees provide shade for walkers.

This is a fabulous short walk within the beautiful Golden Valley Tree Park in Balingup. This trail is part of the stunning World Collection of trees which features many mature deciduous favourites alongside rare and unusual specimens. The trails are well marked and sign posted and it's a great place to picnic with picnic tables, BBQ's and toilets available. The views are stunning all year round and it's without doubt the best place in WA to immerse yourself in the 'season', with changes all year round! You can take a dog on a lead and it adjoins the Bibbulmun Track. Would definitely recommend spending time exploring this Park.
