Anyone for a free city walk?
“Meet local legends, discover lost lakes, find out about hidden stories, See your city from a different perspective.”
Another year has come and gone and Jane’s Walk is on this weekend in Perth.
Broadening its base from the fantastic walks that we had around Maylands last year led by Tina Askam a PhD candidate at Edith Cowan University, this year, Jane’s Walk in Perth brings to locals and visitors an excellent selection of free local walking tours from the 6th to 8th May.
Did someone say “What, no tomato?!”
There are truly no tomatoes to be found at Tomato Lake (not today anyway!) – however the lake has much to offer both locals and visitors to Perth.
Located on Oats Street in the suburb of Kewdale - an easy 20 minute drive from the Perth CBD will take you to a scenic nature reserve with offerings to suit everyone.
Tomato Lake is the centre piece of the reserve, surrounded by wetlands, and a series of boardwalks that snake across the lake, and attract an abundance of birdlife.
Here are some of the many activities to enjoy at Tomato Lake:
There are many beautiful scenic walks out and about Perth to explore including many walks along our foreshore and the Swan River.
An easy walk to access from the Perth CBD, is the Maylands to East Perth walk which is an easy 2km return trip from Banks Reserve, Maylands to Claisebrook, East Perth.
Get up close and personal with the suburb of Maylands this weekend! Maylands Walks runs from Saturday 2nd May to Sunday 3rd May and features free walking tours and an interactive exhibit, in and about the suburb of Maylands.
On the walks you can discover amazing buildings and places that would have been lost to the bulldozers were it not for the action of Maylands residents; how ancient trees or a bumpy old bridge can make people feel connected to their neighbourhood.
Travelling from overseas to visit Perth can be particularly tiring, especially if have come from the UK and are recovering from jet lag after a long flight. Don’t let the long flight deter you from making the trip across - there are many excellent reasons why a visit to Perth should be on your to do list if planning a trip to Australia. Perth may be one of the most isolated cities in the world, but despite our remoteness, there are some unique experiences such as our pristine beaches that you should definitely check out whilst exploring our beautiful city.
We in Perth are blessed with perfect weather – it’s winter time as I write this article, and the sun is shining outside, warming up the chilly morning. No matter what time of the year you visit Perth, you’re likely to experience some lovely sunny weather.
