Trails: Urban Walk

The pleasures of urban walking are inevitably different from those of rural walking: you'll find plentiful features of historic interest, public transport, refreshment and other facilities near at hand and, sometimes, a surprising sense of solitude.

Visitor Information Centres may also be able to give details of other walks. For example many of Western Australia's regional towns have heritage trails which stick mainly to streets.

The Department of Transport has a walking guide and good selection of maps and brochures on their website.
