Zamia Trail is the longest trail within Bold Park. This loop trail starts at the Reabold Hill Carpark, but can also be accessed from both the Camel Lake, Tuart and Banksia Carparks. The trail is spectacular at dawn or dusk, and there’s a huge array of native flora and fauna to see, including wildflowers in the spring. There are fantastic views of both the coastline and city and multiple lookouts on the east and west sides of the loop. The trail is mostly gravel and has a relatively uneven surface. 
You can connect this trail to the Reabold Hill Summit Boardwalk, which will take you up to the highest natural point in the metropolitan area.

You probably wouldn’t want to go far out of your way to do this trail, but for what it is - a suburban bushland trail - it’s quite good!

The elevation gives good views of both ocean and city.

The path is clearly marked and easy to navigate.

Lots of banksia trees and Zamia palms. One section has a pine plantation.

The Reabold Hill car park only has 10 car bays. If it’s full, you can park at Perry House and follow the clearly sign posted “scenic walk” up to Reabold Hill and the start of the trail.

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
