Taking a leisurely ride is a great way to appreciate the breadth of Kings Park’s extensive bushland.  

There are many designated shared paths and roads to take advantage of on your journey. The hard surface shared paths in Kings Park bushland to explore include the Western Path, Zamia Path, Goanna Path, Boomerang Path, Speargrass Path and Prionotes Path. 

Bike racks are located in multiple locations around Kings Park and Botanic Garden.

Don’t have your own bike? Spinway WA provides automated bike hire in Kings Park and Botanic Garden. Visitors can use a credit card to hire a standard size (adult) bicycle, with adjustable seat height and a helmet from an eight-bike kiosk located in the Wadjuk Carpark, opposite the Number 935 Transperth bus stop. 

Alternatively, GoGo Active Tours offers guided cycling tours including 'The Matilda Bay and Kings Park loop' which covers 16 km of beautiful riverfront and parkland landscapes.

Please adhere to Kings Park cycling guidelines when riding in the park.
