10 Best Day Hikes in the South West
The South West of Western Australia is home to some spectacular natural beauty and we are incredibly lucky in Perth to be only a few hours from forests of giant eucalyptus, empty expanses of pristine white beaches and towering granite peaks ready to challenge our body and mind.
The tradition of taking a road trip down south is ingrained into the culture of West Australians and with so many great walking trails to enjoy between towns, why not start organising your next trip?
Being located within a biodiversity hotspot provides a variety of wildflowers, unique forests and some of the most photogenic landscapes in all of Australia. Add in some world class wineries and great local produce and there are some great memories waiting to be captured.
I've limited my list to one great hike per area so be sure to visit my Hiking the South West page for more excellent trails that didn't quite make the cut.
