Bike through Perth
The incredible cycle paths that line the South Perth foreshore are the stars of this tour. We will enjoy these dedicated bike trails and no inclines as we see the city from afar, ride over the famous Matagarup bridge in East Perth, stop for an amazing photo opportunity of the Optus Stadium, and discover the wetlands and parklands of Perth. This three-hour tour is the best of both worlds; the highlights of the city of Perth plus the nature that lies just beyond its borders.
Good to Know
We welcome all riders 5ft/155cm and taller. All tours run rain or shine.
