Taking the ‘pain’ out of paintball, laser tag offers all the same thrills,
but without the bruises.
Laser tag centres are popping up all over Perth, and there’s one that will even come to you. Here’s where you can get
your fake-fighting fix.
Lazer Blaze Shop 73 (Level 1) Southlands Shopping Centre, Burrendah Boulevard, Willetton; Unit 2/299 Victoria Road, Malaga.
Laser Corps 10250 W Swan Road, Henley Brook.
Battle Zone 892 Baldivis Road, Baldivis; corner Nicholson and Oxley roads, Forrestdale.

Mobile Laser Quest Visit mobilelaserquest.com.au to arrange a private laser-tag event.
WA’s beautiful parks and bushland are in full bloom in winter – take advantage of the scenery with a bushwalk. Check
this list, and visit trailswa.com.au or everytrail.com for directions, top tips and must-see sights.
A rewarding but challenging track, those who brave
the steep trail will find incredible views. Winter is the
perfect time to see the waterfalls – be careful on the
slippery rocks. On a clear day, you can see right out to
the city. Lesmurdie Falls National Park, Lesmurdie.
Mount Dale Walk Trail
This 2.5km loop is a good option for families, with an
easy climb offering 360 degree views of the Darling
Ranges from the Mount Dale peak. Wander through
the beautiful jarrah forest – keep your eyes peeled
for eagles overhead – and take a picnic lunch. Helena
National Park, Mundaring.
The ‘big kahuna’ of WA walking trails, the Bibbulmun
Track stretches an impressive 1000km from Kalamunda
to Albany. Broken into nine sections, with a range of
shorter walks available, it can be tackled with a day trip
from Perth. Try the 20km Mount Cooke hike – the peak
is the highest point in the Darling Ranges. Sullivan
This 14km track is accessible from Serpentine National
Park or Jarrahdale cemetery carpark. The trail is
beautiful, but some steep sections and uneven ground
mean it’s best for walkers with previous experience. If
you start from Jarrahdale, there’s also Stacey’s Track,
a shorter option. Jarrahdale cemetery, Jarrahdale.
Eagle’s View Walk Trail
A 15km hike, the Eagle’s View Walk Trail is for people of
at least moderate fitness, but is definitely worth it – you
get views of Perth city and the ocean from the top of
the valley, and you’ll see waterfalls, lakes, and boulders
on the way up. In winter, the Hovea Falls will be flowing,
so pack a picnic and stop there for lunch. Ranger’s
office, John Forrest National Park.
If you’ve got a few days, explore some of the bushwalking tracks
in WA’s southwest.
Cape to Cape Track
One of the best-known walking trails in the state, the Cape to Cape takes
between five and eight days to walk end-to-end, but can be split into manageable
day trips. Try the 3.4km sealed road between the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse and the
Sugarloaf Rock carpark (make sure to stop for a scone at the Cape Naturaliste Tea Rooms, too).
Cape Naturaliste Road, Dunsborough.
Margaret River Heritage Trail
Once part of an old railway network for transporting timber, this trail’s history means it’s a fairly flat, easy option for
a bushwalk. There are three different tracks to choose from – the River, Karri and Bridge Walks each take you past
what you’d expect from their names. Rotary Park, Margaret River.
Warren River Loop Walk
Walk down through karri forests to the Warren River on this easy 10.5km trail. Look out for the Bicentennial Tree at
the start of the track – one of only three fire lookout trees in the area open to the public, you’re welcome to climb it
if you’re brave enough. Old Vasse Road, Pemberton.
