The Zig Zag is a popular scenic drive amongst the Shire of Kalamunda community. The Shire is currently seeking to identify if seniors and people with a disability from within the Shire utilise the Zig Zag Scenic Drive and how and when this might occur. In relation to this the Shire of Kalamunda has developed the ‘Zig Zag Scenic Drive Community Action Plan Questionnaire’ for senior residents and residents with a disability to complete.
Acting CEO Clayton Higham says “The purpose of the questionnaire is to find out if the Zig Zag Scenic Drive is being used by seniors and people with a disability, and if not what we can do to make it more accessible.The Shire of Kalamunda is always open to new suggestions.”
The Kalamunda Zig Zag was completed in 1891 by the Canning Jarrah Timber Company to supply railway sleepers to Perth’s growing railway system. The line was, for its day, a prodigious undertaking and travelled from Midland to Canning Mills.
Today the Zig Zag is a popular scenic drive which is also used by community members as a favourite walking and cycling route. Home to several events, the Shire of Kalamunda annually holds its Walk the Zig Zag event, during which the Zig Zag Scenic Drive is open only to pedestrians, allowing participants the opportunity to admire the region’s magnificent views and wildflowers. The Zig Zag is also used for a stage of the annual QUIT Targa West Rally, and Tour de Perth and Tour de Kalamunda cycling events.
