Segway Tours WA
How did Segways come to Western Australia? This incredible ride has to be shared.
This amazing machine first fascinated me on a visit to Washington DC back in 2004. I leapt off a cramped tour bus and approached a group of excited tourists learning to ride a machine that stood up by itself. It was as though I was stepping into the future. These guys had smiles wider than the Grand Canyon. I had to try it. Within minutes, I was hooked and knew I had to share this experience.
My insightful business partner shared the passion for this innovative, fun way to explore a city and saw a myriad of possibilities for its use in Western Australia. So we brought the Segway to Perth. Our desire to change how people see Perth and Western Australia is what inspired the creation of ‘Segway WA’. We became the first Segway dealer in WA and remain the sole dealer of the Segway product.
‘Why haven’t we seen Segways around?’ you ask?
Since bringing the Segway technology to Perth in 2006, we have been striving for change in the road traffic legislation to allow for the Segways to be ridden on paths and roads. Partial change finally came after much persistence and Segways were allowed to operate under commercial use by authorised tour operators earlier this year. What better way to explore the attractions this great state has to offer than on a self controlled, futuristic, eco-friendly machine?
Our mission is to provide a vehicle for Australians and international travellers alike to experience the beauty and diversity that Western Australia has to offer. That vehicle is a Segway. Segway Tours WA designs tours with English-speaking travellers in mind and invites you to share in the unique, weightless feeling that only a Segway can give you. We are proud to be West Australian owned and operated.
