Zig Zag Scenic Drive

An iconic destination for both local community members and tourist alike located in the Gooseberry Hill National Park.

Earlier in 2021 the Zig Zag operated as a shared path – Pedestrian and Cycling Friendly Zone, as a part of a temporary trial to seek the communities feedback regarding its future use.

Following the considerable feedback gathered from the community, the City of Kalamunda will reopen the Zig Zag Scenic Drive to motor vehicles during the day from 1 July 2021 for a 12-month trial.

Explaining Council’s decision, Mayor Margaret Thomas said following extensive community consultation about the Zig Zag Scenic Drive’s future and a significant period where the road had been closed to vehicles, there is a good understanding of the impacts of the one-way road being always closed and being always open to vehicles.
Moving forward with the 12-month trial the City has developed a shared path schedule for when the Scenic Drive will be available to motor vehicles.

The Zig Zag Scenic Drive is an one-way shared path drive (from the top to the bottom), with stopping only permitted in designated areas.


Hours: 11.00am - 8.30pm
✔️ Permitted:  🚗 Cars, 🚴Cycles, 🚶‍♂️Pedestrians
 The Zig Zag Scenic Drive will be open to motor vehicles.


Hours:  8.30pm - 11.00am 
✔️PERMITTED: 🚴Cycles, 🚶‍♂️Pedestrians
The gates will be locked. No motor vehicles are permitted to enter the Zig Zag Scenic Drive during this period.

This is a shared zone - please be courteous to other users. Be mindful of the environment and take and dispose of your rubbish responsibly.

The City will monitor vehicle activity and user behaviour across the trial period and will provide ongoing reports to Council detailing its findings and recommendations, with the aim of finding a long-term solution for the Zig Zag Scenic Drive.

The City wishes to foster the benefits of social interaction and strengthening of community through the continued use of the Zig Zag Scenic Drive in the way that best benefits the community and our environment.
