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

Perth, Australia

The Map

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

The Story

The translation of Karak Bidi means Black Cockatoo Trail, but it's not just about bird life. Along the way, there are Swan River views, trendy shopping streets, parkland, affluent suburbs and the history of Karrakatta Cemetery.

Hello, I'm Marc and welcome to metrotrekker.

Be it seeing the city sights, exploring parklands and gardens, urban walks or day-hikes in the city outskirts, the metrotrekker website details walking routes and hiking trails accessible by foot and public transport in metropolitan areas.

The metrotrekker website provides you with all the details required for metropolitan exploration:

  • a map with geolocation and a selection of map types (street, satellite, topographical)
  • navigation formats compatible with common GPS devices, desktop browser/software or mobile apps
  • trail length and difficulty
  • start and finish options (particularly by public transport)
  • photos/videos
  • attractions or points of interest along the way
  • other walks and hikes nearby
  • often a story or detailed description of the trail (I have personally walked every single trail on the website)
  • a comments section, so feel free to write about your experiences as well
  • and more improvements and resources are continually being added

So let's get outside and explore our great metropolitan areas by foot. Click Here to begin exploring with metrotrekker.
