Camel West, Perth

4.3
#70 of 89 in Tours in Perth
Back in the mid 1800’s Camels were imported to Australia to help build some of our major infrastructure like the overland telegraph, The Ghan and Trans Australian Railways and even the Kalgoorlie pipeline. The use for Camels quieted down around 1920’s when cars and steam trains became more popular which eventually saw Camels become redundant for our infrastructure needs.

At Camel West we’ve found a new job for Camels and it’s a lot more exciting than building railway lines.

Located at Barrack Square and lead by our head Cameleer, Jon we’re showing friends, family and tourists a never before seen view of our city. With tours lasting up to one hour, Jon will take you for a walk down Riverside Drive (with a history lesson at no extra charge), chatting about Perth, Camels and, his relationship with Camels that started when he was just a little boy on a farm.
