SEGWAY Tours WA won the New Tourism Development category at the WA Tourism Awards soon after celebrating its first year of operation in Perth.

Owen Williams, of West Leederville, and his sister Belinda Hill spent 10 years getting legislation changed in Perth so they could operate segway tours from Barrack Street.

The pair launched the two-wheel tours in Perth last October, and on Rottnest Island last December.

‘It’s more off-road on Rottnest,’ Mr Williams said.

‘We give people an environmental, cultural and heritage tour of the island. We want to give people a different experience to being on a bike.’
