Purpose of the Perth-Peel Coastal Walks and Long distance walk trail Website
This is a work in progress, but here is an introduction.
The Perth-Peel metropolitan area now extends over 150km from Dawesville in the south to Two Rocks in the north. This is longer than the the distance between Capes Leeuwin and Naturaliste.
Most of the Perth-Peel coast is developed with foreshores reserves separating the house from the beach, and most reserves now have formal paths that run parallel to the. Some are now bitumem/concrete and well used by walkers, runners cyclists etc. Other are more remote and are either sand or crushed limestone.
These paths and tracks offer a range of experiences - as shown in the photos above - from busy and highly developed to quiet almost wilderness, with most somewhere in between.
These paths and tracks are a hidden treasure and resource - they potentially form a single long distance walking trail longer than the Cape to Cape trail. It can be walked end to end in one go over 6-8 days or completed in a more leisurely manner, for example, completing one section every Sunday over 6-8 weeks.
This website has two broad aims:
- To create and promote the Perth-Peel coastal trail as a long distance urban trail and to provide resources to enable anyone to walk end to end in any manner they want.
- To provide a resource for day walkers anywhere in the Perth-Peel Region wanting to do a casual or more serious walk on the coast.
