Spring is here and there is no better place to be but in the beautiful Perth Hills. Here is our self-guided tour of picturesque Roleystone and surrounds to enjoy in any season. Brookton Highway is the centre point where all the action can be accessed. Find it off Albany Highway in Kelmscott or if you are coming from the eastern suburbs, take advantage of the beautiful drive through Kalamunda, Carmel and Pickering Brook. Gorgeous any time of year!
No trip to Roleystone would be complete without a visit to the world famous Araluen Botanical Gardens. Stunning in any season, but spectacular in Spring. Open every day of the year except Christmas day 9:00am – 5:00pm. Check out their website for updated fees and special events.
Raeburn has opened its doors to the public and has become an Instagram sensation with avid photographers keen to capture that golden snap! Fiercely popular with tourists, locals and the community at large, be sure to check out their Facebook page for all seasonal updates.
One of the loveliest parks in the area is Borello Park. Take a picnic or share the spoils of some amazing local produce on the luscious grassed area. A fantastic playground with new and old equipment set amongst nature’s very own fun park
Choose from the many trails throughout Roleystone to enjoy the amazing scenery, wildflowers and wildlife!
This hidden gem is tucked away and a marvel to discover! Enjoy the amazing views from the top of the dam and a low key walk trail that winds around the dam and back to the brook. Plenty of seating, BBQs, a great playground and a huge open space to throw the rug or have a kick of the footy.
Compliment your self-guided tour with a sweet indulgent treat from Honey’s Bakehouse! Pick up one of the popular artisan loaves for home or grab a coffee to dine in or take away!
Situated next to Honey’s Bakehouse in the Roleystone Shopping complex is the delightfully quirky cafe serving up fresh, delicious meals, sweets and amazing coffee. Plenty of seating in and out and very child-friendly.
Head up Heritage Drive on your way back from the botanical gardens for a pint and a parmy at this stunning spot. The cafe is a part of the golf resort and offers up tasty food, a licensed bar, coffee and amazing views.
This is a must see stop off. Not only do Avocados serve up tasty fare with a fantastic choice of indoor and alfresco seating, but it sits right alongside the Canning Dam and is covered in water lillies! A beautiful sight any time of year children are sure to be amazed by this natural beauty and entertained by the playground overlooking it.
