Kings Park Added to Perth’s Segway Tourist Trail

Kings Park is to be included in the city’s popular segway tours from next week.

The decision to allow the guided tours through Perth’s most popular attraction comes after a long-running bureaucratic battle.

The tours will operate out of Elizabeth Quay, with patrons given a comprehensive training session before joining the tour.

“It is obviously an honour to be allowed to begin taking people through our magnificent Kings Park,” Segway Tours WA director Owen Williams said.

“The tour will go past Parliament House and up to Kings Park and the boab tree and the magnificent views.”

Segway Tours WA will now be operating through Kings Park.

Segway Tours WA launched in 2013 and has conducted tours for 30,000 tourists in Perth, Fremantle and Rottnest Island.

They have been working with government agencies over the past six months to select appropriate roads and paths in Kings Park. The segways will be limited to 10km/h, with some paths restricted to 5km/h.

The tours will operate for 90 minutes, costing from $115 each.

Mr Williams said about 40 customers a day could be accommodated.
