Short but great getaway from all the hassle.

I personally think that Bell Rapids is a pretty decent place to get close to Mother Nature, which provides a short escapade from the city and work :) Besides that, it is a good choice for a family picnic! The Bells Rapid Walk Trail is relatively short but I think in terms of fitness requirement, it is a moderate one. Standing at the footbridge over Swan River, you could see the spectacular view of the rapid that serves as a vantage point for the popular annual White-Water event early August. There are two walk trails available, which is the River Walk (2.5km with mostly flat walk along the river) and Goat Walk (3 km with some steep inclines and loose gravel sections). We decided to challenge the Goat Walk and this energetic uphill climbs proved to be very rewarding with amazing panoramic views along the Darling Scarp and across Swan Coastal Plain to Perth City! :) Apparently at certain times of the year, you could spot the beautiful grey kangaroo in abundance, but sadly we couldn't spot any yesterday :( However, I am relatively happy to be able to spot some cute alpacas when we are leaving Bell Rapids :D
