Kings Park Loop WA

Another well run track by locals and tourists alike, Kings Park is at close proximity to the CBD, making it a training mecca for suits and skins wearers alike. Runs can start anywhere, but for the most scenic start and finish, park on Fraser Ave and make your way in an anti-clockwise direction along the dirt trail following Kings Park Drive. From there, a footpath will take you through bushland all the way until the bottom of Kings Park near the University of Western Australia.

This path will lead you to either the Rollercoaster Run (paved) or the Law Walk (woodchips), and upon finding your way back to Fraser Ave, you will be greeted by million dollar views of the city for a stretch and warm down.
