On August 10, 2023, the Minister for Planning made a decision that the area will become an urban area in the future.
The Mt Brown Walk Trail and Henderson Cliffs are scenic and family-friendly trails through the western portion of the Beeliar Regional Park. The walk trail and cliffs are managed by the Department of Parks and Wildlife.
Mount Brown lies in the western chain of the Beeliar Regional Park, close to the Indian Ocean. The walk to the lookout is a scenic two kilometre hike, with the option to walk an extra four kilometres around Lake Mt Brown on the eastern side of Mt Brown.
The track is a hardened compact surface with a gentle hill. It is suitable for families with young children.
The Mount Brown carpark at the base of the trail is located across the road from the Naval Base Caravan Park on Cockburn Road.
The Henderson Cliffs are along the far western section of the Beeliar Regional Park. The unique cliffs are made up of Tamala limestone, which has formed from wind-blown dunes where sedimentation has occurred and water has percolated through forming carbonate underneath.
You can walk the distance of the cliffs along a pleasant 400m long coastal pathway, which has access and assistance for people with disability. The footpath is sealed and wheelchair accessible from the car park for 100 metres to the lookout. There is an alternative non-accessible foot track which winds north from the lookout and back to the car park for 200 metres. There is a path which crosses Cockburn Road and meets up with the Mt Brown car park after one kilometre.
