Scope out the beautiful waterfront sights, botanic gardens, and historic buildings that dot West Perth on this entertaining tour of the district by Segway. Climb on board this modern machine for an easy-going ride around town, learning about Perth past and present and watching the river for pods of playful bottlenose dolphins.
Meet up with your guide on the Barracks Street Jetty and get set up with your Segway. Strap on a helmet, listen to a brief safety orientation, and spend some time getting used to operating this easy-to-handle, futuristic contraption. Lean forward to speed up, practise turning and stopping, and try some spins and manoeuvres before setting off behind your guide into the streets of West Perth.
Learn all about the new Elizabeth Quay waterfront development, and glide beneath the soaring Swan Bell Tower, which houses historic bells gifted to Western Australia from England. Cruise along the Swan River Foreshore for spectacular views of the water and the city skyline from the beach, and scope out some of the more than 3,000 species of indigenous plants in the sprawling Kings Park and Botanic Garden. See tourists clambering up Jacob's Ladder to reach the top of Mount Eliza, spot the University of Western Australia's campus at Matilda Bay, and loop by the Old Swan Brewery buildings before your scenic ride winds to a close.
