Loop Oldham up Kings Park 2.5km

fastrack index 


one of the best mix up route for the Perth CBD. 
Kokoda track up to Kings Park, city views, down Jacobs ladder, health cafe and waterfall park

Kokoda Memorial track is not really that harsh with graduated steps, plaques and seating. 
at the top is the next Botanical terrace pavilion (opened 2019)
sublte uphill along Hackets path to State War Memorial, spectacular views of the city and Swan river
float down Jacobs ladder to cafe and across the road to waterfall park

Best start points
John Oldham (parking) or Kokoda Memorial walk (parking) - either are bottom are start with up the kokoda and down Jacobs (best to finish going down to the cafe) .. the reward is the cafe lol 

similar distance loop @ John Oldham without the climb is Narrows Loop Old Brewery West 2.5km
