Perth Station to Bayswater Station

DISTANCE: 7.1km GRADIENT: Mostly flat GRADE: Easy


Trainlines are renowned for being flat and straight and this one is no exception. A delightfully easy path to follow, which makes ducking out to Bayswater and back a breeze. Try further afield if you are game, with the path extending all the way to Woodbridge Stn.

Whilst not the spectacular views of the coastline, these trainline rides are steeped in history and popular commuting tracks. Keep your eyes open and you will find plenty to interest you!
