Segway Tours WA

Zip around on a revolutionary set of wheels. It’s the ideal way to explore an island that’s anything but ordinary.

Segways are easy to ride and allow you to explore the hidden reaches of Wadjemup. Scenic tours and off-road adventures are available.

Let Segway Tours WA lead you on a journey of discovery around the island. After everyone is given a safety briefing and is comfortable behind their wheels, the tour will get started.

On the Settlement Explorer Tour, take the opportunity to breathe in the abundance of the space around you. You’ll glide effortlessly past alluring azure waters and be entertained by stories of the settlement’s history along the way.

For those who prefer the path less travelled, the Fortress Adventure Tour awaits. This journey presents the opportunity to delve into the military past of Wadjemup, as you visit historic landmarks such as the Bickley Battery gun emplacement and Jubilee Hill Observation Post.

The Coastal Explorer Tour is the longest of the Segway tours and allows you to immerse yourself in the history of the island while taking in its unique natural landscape. Journey through the island's rolling hills, salt lakes and beaches then enjoy a rest at Geordie Bay Cafe before making your way back to the settlement.

These safe, informative and entertaining tours are suitable for ages 12 and above.
