With rain comes rapids…
About 45-minutes from the CBD in Brigadoon, Bells Rapids is a series of streams and waterfalls that make up part of the Avon River.
In the past it was best known for being a fantastic viewing point for Western Australia’s annual Avon Descent white water race, but it’s since become a popular walking and picnic spot year-round.
Bells Rapids features a couple of leisurely nature walks that run along the banks of the Avon River, and across it with a walk bridge over the rapids.
There’s the 2.5km River Walk and 3km Goat Walk, both offering spectacular views of the Swan Coastal Plain below, along with the rolling countryside of the Swan Valley.
Western Grey Kangaroos are abundant in the area, along with spectacular wildflowers in Spring, and plenty of other flora and fauna if you keep your eyes peeled.
The trails are dog-friendly trail and there’s even a few off-leash areas.
Around this time of year is when the waterways begin to fill up, but if you want to see some proper white water action it’s recommended to head there deeper into winter and spring (the Avon Descent usually takes place early August).
Oh and there’s a somewhat secret waterfall nearby. But we’ll leave that up to you to find.
