Where we’ll go

We start our tour on the South Perth foreshore heading towards the narrows bridge were your guide shows you the oldest surviving colonial structures in Perth, one of Perth’s first swimming areas, the famous Blue Boat Shed and the incredible Matilda Bay parkland situated next to the University of WA. Learn a little about the first Australian who lived in the area and the first explorers from European nations that settled the Swan River Colony.

We enter Kings Park via a superb natural wooded area and often unseen part of the park. Kings Park sits on a little hill and as such we must go up. We have chosen a very gentle approach to Kings Park but you do need to be able to ride a bike and ride up a few inclines. We can always jump off the bikes and walk up any hills you are finding difficult.

We continue and explore the lesser known sections of Kings Park as we traverse this incredible parkland. See sections very few can as we ride towards the main precinct area. Here we stop for a well-earned break and explore on foot this part of the park allowing you to take some incredible photos.

Kings Park has half of Australia’s 25,000 plant species and most are not found elsewhere on the planet. So all year round your guide will always find something special to show you in the park.

Your ride continues via the beautiful secluded John Oldham Park and then back to the South Perth foreshore.

This tour involves some hills and you need to be able to exercise with some periods of increased heartbeat. At all times you can dismount and walk your bike up or down a hill. You’ll be able to do this tour if you ride a bike a few times a year and are an active person.
