Walk the Zig Zag

Today Sarah and I did the Kalamunda Walk the Zig Zag.

Originally the Zig Zag was a Rail route but is now a public road. It Zig Zags down Gooseberry Hill in Kalamunda (which is about a 5-10 min drive from our place).
Once a year they close the road to hold the community walk. All the way along there are bands, buskers, story tellers, community groups and information kiosks. It's a great family and community outing. There is also some wonderful views of Perth from up there.View of Perth City from about 1/2 way down.

We parked at the bottom and took the free bus to the top - where a (Bag) Pipe band was playing. We started to walk down. Sarah spent alot of time looking for our shadows. As we Zig Zagged - our shadow's were behind us, then in front, then behind, then in front again.
At the First Zig stop there were Camel rides and Info about Wild Flowers, Flora, Fauna and the Local environment.

The 2nd Zig - We saw Snakes, Parrots, Echidna's and other Wild life. Sarah was not keen to touch the snakes.....nor was I!

At the 3rd Zig they had a Circus Challenge tent where you could try out a Hoola hoop, Juggling or Spinning a plate on a stick. They also had a Bush Fire Awareness tent there and a Fire Truck. They were letting the kids squirt the fire hose everywhere.

The last Zig was where we found the Sausage Sizzle and a Swing band entertaining the eaters.

Once we got to the bottom we got on another bus that took us back to our car.

Hi, I am almost a year too late, but Welcome to Perth. I didn't know about the Zig Zag walk. It looks like great fun.
I really love your cards and I will be checking back regularly to see what you have created. I am a enthusiastic card maker too.
