If you’re lucky enough to be a born and bred Perth local looking for adventure or you’re planning yourself an exciting trip out West this spring, then you’re about to be very, very spoilt for choice! Perth has an awful lot to offer in the way of outdoor activities, with stunning coast, breathtaking natural landmarks and rich cultural history at every turn, it’s hard not to stumble across unforgettable experiences. Make your springtime as enjoyable as possible by heading to these perfect Perth locations and camping spots…

Explore the bike trails

Perth has some amazing trails to explore by bike. This is a great way of getting active in the fresh air with the whole family, no screens in sight. Zip up to Perth’s Northern Beaches for the Marmion To Burns Beach bike trek. You’ll cruise along with a stunning view of the horizon, and if you time your trip right you’ll get to witness the breathtaking marvel of the sun setting over the Indian Ocean. Pack a picnic to recharge at one of the many grassy spots dotted along the coast.


Healthy hiking

If biking is not your thing but you’re still feeling up to an energy charged adventure, then it’s time to schedule in some healthy hiking! Ask anyone about Perth hiking, and they’ll point you in the direction of the Bibbulmun Track, which stretches from Kalamunda to Albany – about 900km long! Crop out your own slice of trail and venture from the Mundaring Weir hotel to the striking Golden View lookout. This is around 7.5km, so it’s ideal for a day’s exploring. This stroll is rich with cultural history, picturesque outlooks and bewildering sights, so bring your camera.

Picnic somewhere new

Kings Park is the ultimate picnicking spot for anyone who’s looking for a chilled out day in perfect Perth shade! Kick back and tuck into your snacks at this vast, green giant of a park. Explore the Law Walk, bask in the glory of the many lookout spots and relax all Spring long at Kings Park.


Paddleboarding is such a great way of taking in a city whilst getting your heart pumping, and it’s one of the best outdoor things to do in Perth! Slice through the water on a stand up paddle boarding session with Funs Back Surf, you can rent yourself a ride, head down to Marine Parade and get out there! You’ll see Perth in a whole new light!


Snorkel in the surf

Snorkelling is so much fun and ideal for a family day outside when you’re on holiday in Perth. You really cannot beat Mettam’s Pool for amazing reef, eclectic aquatic life and crystal clear waters.

Top places to camp out in Perth

Camping is, of course, the absolute number one activity to get up to whilst you’re visiting Perth!

Yanchep National Park

Book yourself in at the Henry White Oval campground in Yanchep National Park for an unforgettable family camp out. There’s group camping, hard or grass sites and a communal fire pit, so it’s great for making a few new pals and connecting with your fellow campers. Get stuck in and explore the surrounding wetlands, wildlife sanctuaries and even adventure climbing courses – there’s an awful lot nestled in amongst Yanchep National Park!

Lane Poole Reserve, Murray

Baden Powell Campground is the perfect Perth bound camping spot to set your trailer up at and really switch off from the hustle and bustle of your day to day life. This large ground is situated in the forest, right on the water, so you can enjoy canoeing, white-water rafting, swimming and fishing – just to name a few activities! You’ll need to bring your own drinking water as amenities are pretty stripped back at this leafy location. Cub’s Drifter II is going to provide you with absolutely everything that you need for a magically memorable and comfortable experience. This model offers up all the creature comforts, storage and space that you get from a caravan whilst still promising the ease and freedom that we all love camper trailers for. Set it up in a matter of minutes for a simple, stress free start to your next outdoors adventure.

You’ll spend your time right on the banks of the Collie River.

Hamelin Bay

Hit up Hamelin Bay to make friends with Stingrays, swim in sparkling blue ocean and relax on perfect white sand. Hamelin Bay Holiday Park is literally right on the beach, so if you’re craving a beach holiday to kick off your spring, then this is the best place to head!
