Armadale is the perfect excuse to leave the city life behind and take a day trip that is only 40 minutes from Perth, but feels like worlds away. A short drive will transport you to a natural oasis, set in the Perth foothills and surrounded by tranquil bushland, scenic wildlife and photo-worthy views.
Start the day with a bushwalk through Araluen Botanic Park or a hike up the Gorge at Wungong regional park. After you’ve taken in the expansive views from the top of Wungong Gorge, make use of the recreation and BBQ facilities by tucking into a pre-packed picnic. Spend the afternoon at the Armadale Reptile Centre or the Cohunu Koala Park to cuddle a koala. If you’ve timed your day trip from Perth well, you can spend the evening wandering one of the many seasonal night markets of Perth Hills or instead indulging your taste buds at a local restaurant.
Be sure to check the Perth Hills Armadale Visitor Centre events page before you leave Perth, to see what’s on and schedule into your tour!
