From Serpentine in the south to Gidgegannup in the north, you won’t have any trouble finding an historic pub, tavern, or hotel, each with a unique history and an inviting atmosphere

Dog friendly beer garden. Historic 150 year old Tavern.
With an original structure dating back to 1894 and spectacular views of the surrounding jarrah forest, the historic Jarrahdale Tavern is the perfect place to relax with a cold drink and good food and unwind from city life. Close to the metro area in the Perth foothills, yet it feels like miles away from suburbia.
Dating back to 1857, most of the hotels are over 100 years old with so much history and character. While you’re there, have a look at the venues’ food and entertainment offerings. Many of our heritage pubs are renowned for their restaurants – it’s more than just a chicken parmi up in the Hills!
And you’ll often find great music acts up here too. From David Helfgott to Dave Hole, there’s something to suit everyone’s musical taste.
The trail is 118 kilometres of sealed road and winds through beautiful Darling Range rural landscape and jarrah forest.

What To Pack
What To Pack
Research your trip well in advance. Good preparation is essential as distances in Western Australia are huge and facilities are limited. Visit the website associated with each drive trail for in-depth travel information.
Carry maps, spare parts, a first aid kit and plenty of food and water to last your journey
Visit the ‘Travelling in Outback Western Australia’ website for information regarding travelling in the Outback. Permits may need to be arranged in advance to enter into some areas which are on private property.
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.
