Bold Park

Directions - The car park is located at the top of the hill on Scenic Drive that comes off Oceanic Drive. During peak times it may be difficult to get a park so there is another car park located near the corner of Perry Lakes Drive and Oceanic Drive.

The Hike - Bold Park was a place I knew of but had never really investigated before. I had passed the Reabold Hill turnoff countless times while on my way to nearby Wembley Golf Course but had never thought to check what was at the top of the hill or in the surrounding bushland. Like most of the Western Suburbs, I figured behind the bushland seen from the road was a golf course or university land. With the mercury rising around Perth given the onset of spring, I added it to my list of places I wanted to visit more thoroughly a couple of months ago. Situated just off Oceanic Drive and a very short drive from City Beach, Bold Park is a 437 hectare piece of conservation land that was given protection status in 1998. Since then plenty of rehabilitation work has gone on and the results are spectacular.
