------------------- Heritage Walk Trails ------------------

Explore Kalamunda's fascinating history and heritage through our newly released Kalamunda Town Centre Heritage Walk Trails.

These leisurely, self-guided walks highlight the buildings and sites of the Kalamunda township and reveal the fascinating hidden histories of this area.

Some of the sites include Stirk Cottage, which was the first permanent dwelling in Kalamunda built in 1881, and the Lesser Hall, which was the first brick building and provided a meeting place for isolated early residents.

Via the app, access extended content including slideshow images showing the way the area has changed over time. Hear the authentic voices of people who lived and worked in Kalamunda. They share their memories through short audio clips you listen to as you walk around town.

Immerse yourself in the history of Kalamunda in the days of thriving timber, orchard and guest house industries!
