Hike your way to a pint with the best Perth walking trails and pub combos in Perth.
The old saying – a hard earn thirst needs an ice cold beer, never a truer word spoken when taking on a Perth walking trail, but what if that trail lead you to a pint?
Nothing beats a beautiful Sunday stroll along the walking trails of the Perth Hills.
Well, one thing can certainly top the stroll on its own, and that is combining it with a brew and lunch at some of the best pubs around.
The best bit? You can walk right into these pubs fresh off the trail. Start your walk from the pub and return for a beer and a meal, or make it your halfway stop to refuel for the return hike.
Either way, these walking trail and pub combinations deserve to be on every avid hiker’s bucket list.
Need a hand deciding on the best option to each pub? The Hike Collective has got you covered with over 50 different hiking tours on offer through the Perth Hills, so make sure to check out their upcoming tours.
Parkerville Tavern and Heritage Trail Hike
We kick off this epic list with the most welcoming, inviting, and history rich spots around.
It is where good food, drink and friends come together, and it is smack bang on the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail in Parkerville.
You can start your hike from the Parky and go into John Forrest and back for a cruisy beginner friendly 10km hike, or start from Bellevue and head through for a bite to eat on your way towards Mt. Helena.
Enjoy an entire 19km and two pub stops on the one hike.
Mt Helena Tavern and Heritage Trail Hike
If you opted for option B on the Parkerville Tavern hike, then you will find yourself at Mt Helena Tavern which is situated on the eastern section of the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail.
Or, you can start here and hike an out and back section along the Heritage Trail. The options are endless. Known locally as The Mounties, you can often find local horses, bike riders, and car clubs visiting.
The tavern offers a traditional Australian pub with a country feel and with an almost 120 year old history, it’s worth the visit.
