A Flower Filled Hike from Lions Lookout to Ellis Brook Valley Reserve, Perth, Australia
21st of October 2016
Is it possible to walk from Lions Lookout to Ellis Brook Valley Reserve? Yes ... yes it is, and the floral show is amazing.
- Location: Lions Lookout to Ellis Brook Valley Reserve, Perth, Western Australia, Australia
- Start or End: I started at the bus stop near Lions Lookout on Welshpool Road East at Lesmurdie then walked all the way to Ellis Brook Valley Reserve and then finished at Gosnells Train Station. Public transport to Ellis Brook Valley is not very good, so that's why I walked the extra 4km to Gosnells Train Station (Caution: you will need to jump the small fences to cross the Tonkin Highway).
- Length: 18.0km (11.2mi)
- Grade: Hard. It is a rather long way on gravel paths, some of which are steep and eroded. There are also dangers around the cliffs of the Old Barrington Quarry and Sixty Foot Falls.
