An Extension of the Kalamunda Railway Heritage Trail to Victoria and Bickley Reservoirs

Perth, Western Australia

The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at the bus stop on Railway Road after Gooseberry Hill Road, Gooseberry Hill (Google Map Directions) and finished at Maddington Train Station (Google Map Directions). It would be best to end the walk at Bickley Reservoir (Google Map Directions), but public transport is non-existent so you need to walk closer to the suburbs. The 229 bus stop on Maddington Road before Dellar Road (Google Map Directions) is about a 4km walk along pavement from Bickley Reservoir.
  • Length: 27.8km (17.3mi) in about 7hr (the walk from Bickley Reservoir to Maddington is about 6km of this)
  • Grade: Medium to Hard. A long walk, but the terrain isn't that difficult. Paths range from narrow bush tracks, wide gravel paths and pavement.
  • Date Walked: 7th of November 2018
