At least Lake Claremont had some green grass, Lake Jualbup is just a muddy puddle and absolutely horrible looking. I feel sorry for the poor ducks who have to fight over an increasingly dwindling puddle to paddle in.
Ok, so the lakes have been a bit of a disappointment, but that's my fault. I really should have walked this trail at a more appropriate time of year, like the spring. From the muddy puddle of Lake Jualbup it is east along Onslow Road, past Rosalie Park, the official start of the Bush to Beach walk and into Kings Park.
What can I say about Kings Park, it is personally one of the best spots in Perth for walkers. However, I have had enough walking today so I quickly take in some of Kings Parks highlights on my way to Esplanade train station, like the Bushland Nature Trail, the stunning CBD views of the Cliff Walk and down (the easiest direction) Jacob's Ladder.
Despite some really crappy sections along busy roads I would recommend the Bush to Beach walk as it takes in the best natural bushland in Perth city. It would be even better with the beach section.
Just a note before I sign off. The Bush to Beach walk is well signposted if you go in the correct direction, that is, west from Kings Park towards the beach. I never found myself seriously lost, but all the markers for the walk appeared to be set for the opposite direction. Additionally, if you need some more information on the walk please visit the Bush to Beach blog, the Whadjuk Walking Trails website (which has more walks around the area) or the local council website.
