A Walk from Manning Park to the South Mole Lighthouse

Perth, Western Australia

The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at the bus stop near the corner of Hamilton Road and Dane Place, Spearwood (Google Map Directions) and finished at Fremantle Train Station (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 14.1km (8.8mi) in about 4hr
  • Grade: Easy to Medium. Much of the walk is flat but the Manning Stairs and the paths back down can get the heart pumping. I chose to walk on the beach where I could (better scenery), but the rest of the way is serviced by concrete/asphalt paths or well serviced-gravel tracks.
  • Date Walked: 21st of April 2018

The Story

An early morning walk around Manning Lake and the Manning Stairs followed by a beach and breakwall walk up to the South Mole Lighthouse.
