Discover Kalamunda's quaint historic village feel and range of things to see and do.

Start at the Perth Hills Visitor Centre, where staff and volunteers can help you with information, maps and brochures on all the wonderful things to see and do and places to stay. The Visitor Centre also carries an eclectic range of Australian made gifts and souvenirs, many of them hand made by local artisans.

If you want to stay a night or two, Kalamunda and the Bickley Valley are home to some pretty special places to stay, from cosy bed and breakfasts and simply cottages to fully self-contained apartments and luxury lodges.

Step back in time and discover the history of Kalamunda by following the Heritage Walk Trail, or visit the Kalamunda History Village - the largest folk museum in Western Australia depicting the unique hills life and industries that developed in the area.

A visit to the Zig Zag Cultural Centre is a must, where you can take in one of the many and varied exhibitions at the Zig Zag Gallery. Visit local artists and galleries during Kalamunda Open Studios, or explore the several heritage sites in town. And a visit to the Kalamunda Library will reward you with views of the largest community-built stained-glass window in Australia.

Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Perth Hills on foot by following one of the many trails, from a gentle stroll along the Railway Heritage Trail to embarking on the 1000km long, world-famous Bibbilmun Track, there is something for walkers of all abilities. For spectacular views of Perth City, wander through the bush to the Lesmurdie Falls lookout. 

If you like adventure of the two-wheeled variety, pop your mountain bike in the car (or hire one at the trail head) and hit the Kalamunda Mountain Bike Trails, or tackle a section of the world-class, long-distance Munda Biddi Trail.

After a day of walking and exploring, quench your thirst at the historic Kalamunda Hotel (keep an eye out for the Hotel’s friendly ghost), the town’s tavern or tap house or choose from a number of unique cafes and restaurants, all offering exceptional food and coffee.   

Only a short drive from Kalamunda town is the incredible Bickley Valley, home to scenic drives, towering forests, spectacular valleys, seasonal creeks, family run orchards (look out for pick-your-own) and 14 boutique vineyards and cideries, owned and operated by wine and cider makers who create delicious product that you won’t find anywhere else in WA. Discover these on the Bickley Valley Wine Trail that will take you to the wineries, cellar doors and cideries, many of which offer delicious food - from simple cheese platters to full a la carte menus. The wine and cider makers in the Bickley Valley are progressive and innovative and you’ll be surprised at what you’ll find.

Also in the Bickley Valley you'll find the historic Perth Observatory. This State heritage-listed observatory is a unique tourist attraction, where science and history come together to engage visitors of all ages in astronomy, space science and Aboriginal sky lore. Be sure to take in Worl Wangkiny, an artwork created by indigenous artists to celebrate 60,000 years of Noongar celestial storytelling, captured on to the inner walls of a large part-constructed telescope dome.

Find something fresh at the award-winning Kalamunda Farmers Market, held in town each Sunday morning.  For a unique hand-made gift, visit the Kalamunda Artisan Market, which takes place on the first Saturday of each month. 

Find all you need to know about things to see and do including trail maps, information about visiting the Bickley Valley and recommendations on places to stay at the Perth Hills Visitor Centre.
