About Victoria Reservoir Walk Trail
The Victoria Reservoir Trail is a challenging hike through a historic part of the Perth Hills. Taking in the ruins of the old Victoria Dam that was completed in 1891, enjoy exploring this important part of Western Australian history using the information boards provided. An area of the old dam wall has been preserved and a grassed picnic area has been created under the new Victoria Dam wall.
Starting at the top of the valley, the trail descends down into the catchment area and eventually takes you back up to the start point through scenic Australian bushland. Watch the bush come alive in spring as the wildflowers bloom in a variety of colours all over the forest floor.
