Easy track
Starting from the Reabold Hill carpark on Scenic Drive, just off Oceanic Drive, City Beach, this walk takes you on a circuit within Bold Park via the Zamia Trail. Boasting stunning inner-city views, the Zamia Trail is a hidden gem in the Perth area. Although it's the longest walking trail in Bold Park, it's still a relatively short loop walk at just over 5 kms. Bold Park is one of the largest remaining bushland remnants in the urban area of the Swan Coastal Plain. Despite its proximity to the city, the park features an abundance of wildlife including birds, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. The trail is dotted with little park benches, most with a beautiful view of either the city, or the ocean, making for a perfect place to have lunch in the great outdoors. A short side trail leads to Ocean Views Lookout, where there are panoramic views of the ocean and a couple of park benches to sit for a while and enjoy the views. The Zamia Trail is well signposted, with a terrain consisting mostly of compacted limestone. There are a few sloping hills along the way, requiring a reasonable level of fitness. The trail also partially overlaps a horse riding trail, so be mindful when walking through that small part of the track. Dogs are allowed, as long as they're kept on a lead. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
