This little road used to be a railway track, starting at the top at Kalamunda. It is one way going down hill, which is just as well, as the road is very narrow, but not too steep. It zig zags down through a National park...More

Friends who live in the town took me for a scenic drive. It was night but we still saw a fair bit around the place. Very much need extra lighting though as you traverse your way down and around the zig zag. There is plenty...More

Its nothing that special, but is quite an interesting route back down from the hills via a narrow zig zag road which has some views back to the city and some wildflowers in August/September.

The Zig Zag Scenic Drive is, as the name suggests, one of the most beautiful, scenic drives there are in Perth - zig zagging down the hill of the Gooseberry Hill National Park! Even I, a local, can't get enough of this magnificent vantage point...More

Definitely yes the road is bitumen all the way and the view at sunset is amazing. There are a few roos around at dusk but there is a 40 km speed limit, so take care.
