It may no longer be Perth’s best kept secret, but wander through the Careniup Wetlands and you truly feel like you’ve stepped into a secret wonderland.
Due to Covid19 the Secret Garden in Gwelup is temporarily closed.
Located within hearing distance of busy Mitchell Freeway and bang smack in the middle of suburbia, the secret garden seems a word away from civilisation. Endlessly spreading ravines have covered trees, dead branches and almost everything else insight to transform this swampland into a world fit for the fairies.
There are paths to follow, muddy banks to conquer, bridges to cross and ravine covered tree hollows to discover.
I could rave on, but it’s best if you go explore this little piece of magic yourself. It’s well worth the trip!
