MYSTERIOUS and whimsical miniature doors are popping up across a Hills village with speculation it is the work of fairies.

The Clip Joint owner Sara Colombini said the tiny portals started appearing earlier this month in Kalamunda.

“The first door was spotted outside our shop but it wasn’t long before they had moved into other local businesses and community buildings,” she said.

“My sister and I have taken a keen interest in the fairies and keep everyone informed of their whereabouts by posting photos of the doors as they are spotted on our Facebook page.”

Mrs Colombini said it appeared the fairies had moved into town ahead of the annual Freedom Fairies Picnic in Stirk Park later this month.

Fairy Cherish from Freedom Fairies said the park would be transformed into a wonderland full of mythical creatures and fantasy.

“We can’t wait to welcome everyone to our fairy wonderland and celebrate all things springtime and magical,” she said.

“We have fairies, pirates, mermaids and so many other wonderful characters and activities waiting for you to explore.”

The picnic is on October 28 and is part of the Perth Hills Spring Festival in the City of Kalamunda.
