About this tour
We spend a little time in Guildford, before riding to Whiteman Park. The park itself is beautiful and has a lot of cycle and walking tracks. Caversham Wildlife Park ($27) is fantastic. You can stroke a koala, a wombat, hold a snake, feed kangaroos and see all manner of native Australian birds, reptiles and mammals.
While you are in the wildlife park, our tour guide will be cooking something to eat on the BBQ.
If you don’t want to visit the wildlife park, there is plenty more for you to do and see including both a motor and a tractor museum.
We then cycle into the Swan Valley for some wine and chocolate tastings before returning to Guildford.
What you should bring
We provide the bike and helmet, and you should bring a hat (a cap is best to fit under the helmet), phone/camera, sunglasses, water, cash payment for us if you haven’t prepaid, $27 entry fee for Caversham Wildlife Park (if you want to visit it) and $4.50 for your train fare back to Perth. Wine tastings are included.
Meeting Point and time
Guildford Station is on the Midland line.
If you leave Perth Central Railway station, platform 8 on the 9 am train, you’ll get to Guildford at 9.18am which is perfect. If you miss that train there’s another 15 minutes later and we’ll wait for you to arrive, but the 9 am train is best.
It’s really important that you walk the correct way when you get off the train. Walk BACK down the platform (towards Perth), not forwards, towards the overhead walk ways at the front end of the platform. When you get to the crossing point, where you walk across the railway line, turn right towards the car park, not left towards the shops. You’ll find us waiting for you in the car park.
