Enjoy the sounds, sights and scents of Perth’s beautiful inner-city park while you thwart a naughty baby boab smuggler. Suitable for younger children, it is the shortest and easiest of the city detective trails. There are no suspect profiles to analyse or alibis to confirm, and no logic or reasoning required like in many of the other puzzle walks. Almost all you need are sharp observations skills to spot the hidden names.
Detectives with wheels: there’s no stairs to navigate and the walk is on hard paths, but you will have to cross grass to reach four clues.
