1 Zig Zag Scenic Dr, Gooseberry Hill WA 6076, Australia Gooseberry Hill Australia
Gooseberry Hill National Park is a hilly 33 hectare which has magnificent views of the Swan Coastal Plain and provides some amazing photography and bird watching opportunities. Within Gooseberry Hill National Park is the iconic a one-way scenic drive, known as the Zig Zag, which was formerly part of the railway line which serviced the timber industry and Stratham’s Quarry. The Zig Zag leads downhill through the park and, every year in early October, the Shire of Kalamunda holds a Zig Zag Walk event, where the road is open only to pedestrians allowing people the opportunity to admire the views and see the area’s wildflowers. The Zig Zag is also used as a stage in the Targa West Rally. You can access the top of Stratham’s Quarry from the Zig Zag which is also within the Park. Stratham’s Quarry is a great picnic spot. It has also been the scene of weddings, movies, abseiling accidents and many a brown pant moment! If you’re vertically inclined, the Quarry is a great spot for abseiling and rock climbing.
