Enjoy the best of nature with Eco Treks

Published on Wednesday 28 August, 2019


With the weather warming up, come and enjoy nature at its finest at the new City of Gosnells Eco Treks series.

The six walks take residents through some of Perth’s most spectacular bush reserves and wetlands, as well as urban settings including historic landmarks and public art installations.

Each walk is run by knowledgeable volunteers or City staff who will guide participants along the walking trails, pointing out particular items of interest.

Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said Eco Treks is a great way to explore some of the City’s hidden gems, while keeping fit and making new friends.

“In September and October, take in the beauty of Ellis Brook Valley and discover wildflowers, local birds, insects and animals on the guided walk with naturalist Marc Lane or for the more intrepid, hike to the top of the stunning 60 Foot Falls” he said.

“People can also enjoy a stroll through Mary Carroll Park, one of Perth’s major breeding wetlands and a haven for birds, reptiles and turtles.

“Also at Mary Carroll Park, enjoy a special Breakfast at the Birds event, followed by a guided walk to observe the native birds.”

In October, Eco Treks take people on a walking tour through the Gosnells Town Centre that uncovers public artworks, which celebrate and reveal aspects of life in the City.

In November, hear about the hidden history of Maddington and Kenwick as participants follow the winding banks of the Canning River, while learning about the local landmarks and stories.

The walks are free and supported by the Friends of Ellis Brook Valley and Friends of Mary Carrol Park.
