The HIKING CLUB OF WA aims to provide recreational walking and associated activities in both suburban and country areas for exercise, for an appreciation of our natural surroundings and for social interaction with a friendly group of people.
Now that we are well into autumn, and a cool one at that, we have finished the last of our city walks and are moving into the hills, with a mixture of walks that range from easy to hard.
Our main walks are held on Saturdays throughout the year. These usually take place within 50 km of Perth and include National Parks such as John Forrest, Yanchep, the Avon Valley, Jarrahdale and Serpentine, as well as following little known pathways through suburban parks, along the banks of rivers and streams, beach areas (in summer) and historical suburbs such as Subiaco and Shenton Park.
Our walks are graded from EASY to HARD and can cover distances from 8 km to 16+ km over a reasonable period of time. Throughout the year, we walk through many different types of terrain from FLAT to UNDULATING to STEEP HILLY AREAS.
Walks are always interesting, it's amazing how many beautiful spots there are to walk in, in Perth, that you have never been to! From experience, we know of all the great walks, many of which you wouldn't suspect! With us, you can discover a Perth you have never seen.
A friendly social air is maintained throughout our activities and occasionally a great coffee place, a meal at a cafe or a scenic picnic spot in the hills may be included in the activity.
