Le Chic En Rose

Diaries of an independent traveller

A new recreational facility has recently opened along the coast just to the north of us. With the slightly unfortunate name of Whitfords Nodes (no idea why it is called this!) it has incorporated the existing parkland of Hillarys Beach Park and surrounding native bush to form a new development known as a “health and wellbeing hub”. There are a couple of children’s play areas, picnic zones and also two separate lookout points designed to give you a workout. You certainly get this as multiple steps lead up to one viewing area and a steep winding path up to the other.

With Perth enjoying fresh spring weather at present, not too hot and not too cold, it was the perfect location for a walk last weekend. The only problem was that dogs have to stay on the coastal path. I duly left Monsieur and Winston Le Schnoodle down by the sea and headed up to the first lookout point to take some photos of the ocean, Hillarys Boat Harbour and enjoy the colourful display of wild flowers.

I have a few more Western Australian posts to do then I’ll complete the last remaining overseas trip still to write up – Alaska and Seattle. After that I’ll have to find a way to spin things out till we can travel again …….who knows when? In the meantime we do enjoy our walks and the opportunity to get outside into nature now that the weather is warming up “Down Under”.

    1. Yes we’re lucky it’s close by (about a 5 minute drive from our house). I always love lookout points too – great for admiring views and taking some photos πŸ™‚

    The local stuff is nice too, Rosemay. Anyone who wants to see Grand Canyon or Alaska or any of the big hitters only has to look on Google, but to see your neck of the woods I have to come here πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Have a good week!

    1. Thanks Jo – I decided to throw this post in as I’d taken some photos when we were on our walk the other week. I always find it interesting to see people’s localities – it’s a good way to keep in touch too in these weird times! The weather is warming up here – low 20s today and just glorious with all the spring flowers and blossoms. Hope you have a lovely week too! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚


    1. And a good way to stay fit running up steps and hills! The view from the top is worth it πŸ™‚
