Fancy experiencing a small section of the famous 1000km Bibbulmun Track followed by a dip in the scenic Rocky Pools, a popular pre-1930's swimming hole? If so, then the Rocky Pool Walk is for you. Along the way, you can also experience bountiful wildflowers (at the right time of year of course), wildlife and valley views. But a word of warning, the Rocky Pool Walk is also rather rocky and steep in sections, but the effort is well worth it.
The Kalamunda local government has done a great job marking trails around the local area. One of my favourites would have to be the Rocky Pool Walk, a loop walk in Kalamunda National Park. For more information on the trail please visit Kalamunda.wa.gov.au, which provides a map and trail details in .pdf format.
As the name implies the trail passes by the Rocky Pools (i.e. pools of water amongst rocks), a scenic spot easily accessed from the path. The Rocky Pool Walk is also aptly named as the trail can be rather rocky and the gradient of some sections will leave you in pools of sweat.
Officially the walk starts at the carpark at the end of Spring Street, Kalamunda. If you don't have a car the best public transport access is via the Kalamunda Bus Station on Mead Street. From Kalamunda Bus Station, walk east along Mead Street until you hit a round-a-bout at Railway Road. Here you will see the northern terminus of the Bibbulmun Track, a 1000km hiking trail which makes its way down to Albany on Western Australia's southern coastline.
