Picnicking at Serpentine Falls, Mundaring Weir...
There are many beautiful spots
in the Hills for picnics in winter
and spring, such as Serpentine
Falls, in the Serpentine Falls
National Park. It’s great for a
daytrip with well-kept picnic
grounds in natural surroundings.
As the weather warms up in
November, you can swim, too.
Another interesting place to visit
is Mundaring Weir, which can
hold 63,597 litres of water that’s
pumped up to the Goldfields along
CY O’Connor’s famous golden
pipeline. Vegetation in the Hills
includes jarrah, marri and wandoo
forest, with an understorey of
banksias, acacias, kangaroo paws
and blue leschenaultia. The acacias
bloom through winter, but late
winter and early spring is when
the region comes into its own. The
Perth Hills wine region has been
recognised since 1999 and there are
29 wineries. Get there via the four
designated wine trails, which also
take you to restaurants.
