A Flower Filled Hike to Ellis Brook Valley

Perth, Australia

The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at the bus stop near Lions Lookout on Welshpool Road East (Google Map Directions) at Lesmurdie then walked all the way to Ellis Brook Valley Reserve and then finished at Gosnells Train Station (Google Map Directions). 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) in about 7hr
  • 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.
  • Date Walked: 21st of October 2016

The Story
