The Town of Cambridge is home to some of the most stunning bushland settings Perth has to offer.
To showcase some of this unique environment, the Town has helped to establish designated walking trails throughout the region, ranging in lengths and landscapes.
These trails are designed to encourage the community to utilise and appreciate their local bushland.
Walkers may even learn something they didn't know about the local environment, as many walks offer information points along the way!
Bush to Beach Trail
The Bush to Beach Trail is a 16.3km walking trail from Perth city and finishing at Grant Marine Park (near Cottesloe Beach).
The Trail, which lies on Whadjuk Noongar land, has a defined route and starting at Rosalie Park (across from Perth's famous King Park), then veers toward Perry Lakes and Bold Park, before linking down to the Cottesloe coastline.
The Trail is marked with triangular directional signage inserted into paths and bollards.
Above: Examples of directional signage to guide visitors throughout the trail.
For the smart phone users, a free APP is available from the Every Trail website which links to QR codes found on signage throughout the path. Scanning the QR codes will give you access to information about sections of the trail and its heritage.
Most of the Bush to Beach Trail is dog and cycle friendly, however through Bold Park, bicycles are prohibited. An alternative route is accessible for cyclists along Underwood Avenue through to Rochdale Road, bypassing the Bold Park section.

The Town's original Heritage Trail was designed and constructed in conjunction with the Lions Club of Floreat in 2001.
The Town is currently in the process of revitalising and redeveloping the trail with Kulbardi Hill Consulting. It is anticipated that the new trail will be completed by mid 2013.

Guided walks of Bold Park
The Botanic Garden & Parks Authority (BGPA's) run regular guided walks throughout the scenic Bold Park bushland, giving visitors a fun and interesting experience through this lush and flourishing landscape.
Led by volunteer guides from the Friends of Bold Park Bushland, these free walks discuss the array of native flora and fauna which call Bold Park park home. Guides also inform visitors about the park's interesting biodiversity, geology, turbulent history and current conservation projects.
