Hiking the South West of WA

After exploring most of the major trails in the Perth Area it was time to set my sights a bit wider and the South West Region of Western Australia is littered with fantastic trails. Being one of the only biodiversity hot spots in Australia, the forests, beaches and mountains provide a rich and unique environment to explore.

 

The tradition of a down south trip is a big part of Western Australian culture and made all the better by exploring the world class attractions on foot. You will be amazed at what you can see only by reaching a destination by hiking so get out there and give it a go.

 

Enjoy exploring the trails and let me know in the comments section your favourite hiking trails in the South West.
