Best spots in Perth to hit the pavement with your pram.
One of the best things about living in Perth is how family friendly everything is. You can pretty much take your kids anywhere and they’ll usually be easily accommodated no matter what you’re up to. With our myriad of walking trails across the city and further out into the Perth Hills, you can be sure to find some great spots for pram walks with your little ones.
Saying that there are some particularly great places that are ideal for young families who love going for walks but still need to take a pram along. Here are 6 of the best pram walks in Perth to check out next time you take the kids out for a stroll.
Swan View Tunnel, John Forrest National Park
Starting from the picnic area, the 5km trail that takes in the Swan View Tunnel is always popular with kids, young or old. Don’t forget to pack a torch for going through the tunnel as it does get very dark in the middle!
Araluen Botanical Park, Roleystone
There are a few different options for pram walks around Araluen Botanical Park. They’re all very pram-friendly but cover different distances so you’re spoilt for choice here. There is a small admission charge for adults, which is currently $10, but children under 6 years old are free.
Wetlands Walk Trail, Yanchep National Park
If you’re looking for a shorter pram walk, head to Yanchep National Park. The Wetlands Walk trail is around 2 kilometres and the track is level and easy to navigate with a pram. The walk takes you from the visitor centre all around the lake and has some lovely points to stop and admire the views.
Wunanga Trail, Whiteman Park
This trail in Whiteman Park is not only pram-friendly but dog-friendly too! It can get pretty hot in summer so if you’re visiting in the warmer months, make sure you head out early and pack lots of water and sun cream. It’s set in a figure of 8 design so you can do a shorter version of the 4.3km trail if needed.
Bushland Nature Trail, Kings Park
Before you head off on the Bushland Nature Trail in Kings Park, make sure you pick up a brochure – it contains a botanical guide to the flora you can spot along the way, making it a bit of a treasure hunt style walk for the kids. It takes around 25 minutes to do so is great for little legs who don’t always want to be in the pram.
Goollelal Loop, Yellagonga Regional Park
Designed as a family-friendly walk, this trail takes you all the way around Lake Goollelal. It’s shared between walkers and cyclists and has several rest stops and playgrounds along the way, so pack a picnic and make a day of it!
Cottesloe Beach, Cottesloe
Take in arguably Perth’s best beach with a stroll along Cottesloe Beach.
While going for a walk along the coastline why not make a day of it – grab a coffee at one of many cafes to keep you fueled or pack a picnic and relax on the wide grassy Cottesloe Esplanade, shaded by giant Norfolk Pine trees,.
Lake Monger, West Leederville
Lake Monger is a picturesque lake and looped by a 3.5km trail for you to stroll with your bub. With shaded areas, a playground and ducks/geese – Lake Monger is a perfect place for the family to take in some fresh air.
