About the Trail

The Karda Bidi, depicted with the Monitor Lizard on directional marking is 10.6km long and starts with a stroll through King's Park before following the Swan River foreshore. This enthralling walking trail is fairly level, and normally takes a few hours. Enjoy the views of the Swan River (Derbal Yarrigan) as you allow the history to captivate your imagination.

There are cafes along the route where one can enjoy a cold drink or a bite to eat. Read about the history of the settlers, as well as the local Aboriginal people, the Noongars.

As parts of this walk include stairs and sandy sectors along the banks of the river, cycles and wheelchair access is diverted. Maps of alternate linking routes are available on the trail map.  Karda Bidi connects with Yange Kep Bidi and is part of the Whadjuk Trail Network.
