Camels were an essential part of Western Australian's early transport history and were a common sight in the late 1800's. However, Camels are not what you would normally expect to see walking along the banks of the Swan River in Perth City in 2018. But Jon at Camel West wanted to bring something unique to the City of Perth and now it is the norm to see his camels in and around the ever popular Elizabeth Quay.
Really pleased you enjoyed your camel riding experience. Saddles are individually hand made from real cow(bovine) hide and are pretty comfortable after a bit of time in them... Iâ€™d say much more so than ones first ride on a bicycle after an absence! As a generality people didnâ€™t ride all day on a camel because the camel is also carrying swags and water and supplies so people walked alongside for some of the way to keep their camel fresh and in good condition.
