The Hon Stephen Dawson, Minister for Environment together with the Hon Paul Papalia, Minister for Tourism, have announced that Segway Tours WA will commence in Kings Park and Botanic Garden in early 2018.

City view from Roe Gardens

Kings Park welcomes more than six million visitors a year who come to admire the beauty of Kings Park's bushland, the Western Australian Botanic Garden and take in the ambience of the views to Perth city and the Swan and Canning Rivers.

Segway Tours WA already operate tours in the Perth CBD including Barrack Street and around Mounts Bay Road, Fremantle and on Rottnest Island; and the tours have proven to be a popular and interesting way to see Western Australia.

The Kings Park route will allow visitors to enjoy WA's unique flora and fauna; and get off the beaten track and enjoy a trip into the heart of Kings Park's bushland, with opportunities to enjoy this unique environment.

The use of segways in Kings Park will be limited to visitors in booked tours only on a carefully considered route, which will be released shortly.

At the announcement, made Wednesday 17 January 2018, Mr Dawson said:

'I want to see people use and explore our beautiful parks and using a segway is a great new way to do it.'
