Cairns has them too, mainly backpackers earning a few extra dollars, one or two have been robbed too.

All over the place in Darwin - the main city area is completely flat.
The hills are going to make Freo pedicabs/rickshaws interesting....

Imagine riding up to the War Memorial, no nice way to get there, and I don't mean the hills.

They are classed as bicycles, so should passengers wear helmets under the WA bike laws?

Nope. Paying passengers of bicycles with three or four wheels are exempt from wearing helmets. Regulation 223A(5) is the applicable regulation.
