Drop down a gear and head up to Mundaring in the Heart of the Perth Hills. Enjoy a leisurely drive on leafy backroads, winding through spectacular Jarrah forests and national parks. Delight in art and culture, walk or cycle amazing trails, or simply throw down your picnic blanket and relax beside the tranquil waters of Lake Leschenaultia under shady trees. Although just 40 minutes from Perth, it will feel like you are so much further away from the city bustle.
