A Morning Hike on the Karak Bidi of the Whadjuk Trail Network

Perth, Australia

The Facts

  • Start or End: Officially the walk starts at Rosalie Park and ends at Dalkeith. However, I started at the bus stop on Waratah Avenue near Hobbs Avenue, Dalkeith (Google Map Directions), then walked to Paul Hasluck Reserve. From there I walked the Karak Bidi to Rosalie Park and caught the bus from the corner of Thomas Street and Austin Street, Shenton Park (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 12.3km (7.6mi) in about 2.5hr
  • Grade: Easy to Medium. Good quality paths the whole way and rather flat. Just in the medium category due to length.
  • Date Walked: 22nd of April 2017
