Enjoy the great outdoors
The Bassendean Wicked Walks are a series of leisurely walking trails and a great way to explore the rich historical and scenic side of the Bassendean area. Located in Perth's northern suburbs, Bassendean is close to the Swan River and has historical residential areas but also has plenty of natural bushland and parkland.
Bassendean Wicked Walks
The Town of Bassendean has put together these free self-guided walks. There are three different walking trails to take, each one with an alternate route, ranging from 2.6km to 3km long. Try one or try them all.
1. Bassendean: This walk takes you through the heart of Bassendean and along the Swan River, starting at Point Reserve.
2. Eden Hill: This walking trail includes plenty of natural bushland and parkland, starting at Jubilee Reserve.
3. Ashfield: This trail takes in the wetland area, the wildlife sanctuary and the banks of the river, from the Boardwalk to Sandy Beach Reserve.
Each of these fantastic walks takes about thirty minutes to complete. You can take the walking trails at your own pace and you can do them with a group of friends and family or by yourself.
There is plenty of beautiful parkland along the way, so make a day of it. Why not pack up a picnic, bring along a rug and enjoy lunch by the river or in one of the many parks offering picnic and barbecue facilities and children's play areas?
You can download a copy of the Bassendean Wicked Walks brochure here, then simply follow the directions on the map and enjoy your walk.
It's always a good idea to wear comfortable shoes and clothing when taking one of these walking trails. Don't forget the sunscreen and a bottle of water and you can enjoy a lovely day in the great outdoors.
