Topo: Wilyabrup

Wilyabrup is by far the largest climbing crag in the Margaret River region. Most of the routes on this stretch of red granite are trad routes but there are also a fair amount of bolted routes scattered around. Although the crag lies three hours drive south from Perth, the majestic views of the coast and the fantastic roar of the crashing waves down below makes the long drive more than worthwhile. You can even head off down the Cape to Cape track from the cliffs if you want to

Berkelah Waterfall

Berkelah Waterfall is one of the most popular waterfalls in Malaysia. The impressive series of multiple cascades that you can find there and its accessibility make it easy to see why that is so. Unfortunately, one is reminded very quickly that with throngs of people comes mounds of rubbish. Before we go on, please jot down the numbers that are listed below. If you do see any suspicious behaviour when out hiking, encounter things like traps and snares, or even see protected animals

Kitty's Gorge

Serpentine National Park is located at the foot of the Darling Scarp, just east of Perth. The Serpentine River that runs down the slopes has carved out a valley of polished granite that ends at the well-known Serpentine Falls. The waterfall is not very impressive (especially during the dry season) and by itself does not warrant the fairly steep park entry fees (AUD12 per car), but I feel that the park and the trails around the waterfall definitely do. There have been some fatal

Topo: Mountain Quarry

Mountain Quarry is located in Greenmount National Park and is one of the most well-developed outdoor sports climbing crags within Perth's vicinity. There are numerous bolted routes spread out over several walls. There are also a few trad routes located here. There is a combination-locked gate that leads from the carpark into the quarry. The code for the combination lock can be obtained from the Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPaW) by calling 08 9290 6100. If you

Stirling Ridge Walk

The Stirling Range is unique in many, many ways. Suddenly and abruptly rising from very flat, nondescript lowlands, the range is a prominent feature in the landscape and can be seen clearly from vast distances. Spectacular cloud formations are frequently seen here, which explains the Aboriginal (the Wagyl Kaip people being the traditional custodians) name for the range, 'Koi Kyenunu-ruff', which means ‘mist rolling around the mountains’. The range occasionally

Cape to Cape Track

The Cape to Cape Track is a 135 km-long trail that runs North-South along the West coast of the peninsula between Cape Naturaliste in the North, and Cape Leeuwin in the South. The trail itself mostly follows sweeping, windswept limestone ridges and long stretches of seemingly untouched, pristine beaches. It does, however, occasionally mix it up by looping inland through woodland and gorgeous karri forests. I personally would rate the end-to-end hike of the Cape to Cape as
