A Walk to Karrakatta Cemetery via Kings Park

Perth, Australia

The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at the junction of Hay Street and Williams Street in Perth City (Google Map Directions) and finished at Karrakatta Train Station (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 10.1km (6.3mi) in about 3hr
  • Grade: Easy to Medium. There is a climb up to Kings Park, but after that the walk is flat. Paved most of the way but some grassed and dirt track sections in Kings Park and Karrakatta. If you want a really easy walk, start and finish at Karrakatta Train Station and walk around the history of the flat Karrakatta Cemetery.
  • Date Walked: 18th of April 2015

The Story

An amazing urban sunrise followed by climbing DNA, peaceful gardens and visiting those resting in peace.
