The leisure & pleasure are all mine with the Mundy National Park right at our doorstep. Our home is sited on an elevated block of land (2,613 sqm) with panoramic view of Perth City. Perth Hills & the Park.
The beautiful part about walking in Perth Hills is the conducive weather, which permits outdoor activities throughout the year – spring or summer, winter or fall. The air is fresh & exhilarating, no sweat or perspiration at all. No worry about pollution. Walking is undoubtedly the best form of exercise for senior citizens. I enjoy the fresh morning breeze, birds chirping & the rays of sunshine piercing through the dark sentinels of bushes & trees.
Walking trails are paved, though some small parts may not but cleared. For safety railings exist. Concrete tables & benches are well provided for picnickers. On weekends & public holidays the Park is teeming with crowds.
Summer of 2019/2020 has been hot & dry. Hence the gurgling stream is silent, billabongs (stagnant pools) are dry & not a drip of water cascading down the Lesmurdie Falls.
A picture is better than 10 thousand words. I was trigger-happy with my smart phone & thus ended with a whole sequence of pictures for your viewing pleasure.
