Lake Gwelup

About the Trail

The lake allows for passive recreation and there are also tennis courts and cycle paths located on the Lake Gwelup Reserve.

Enjoy a 2.5km stroll on paved paths around Lake Gwelup. Walking past recreational ovals and a scenic wetland setting, the lake provides great opportunities for birdwatching.

Stop and take a moment at the Lake Gwelup boardwalk to the south of the lake where you can sit and admire all the birdlife the lake has to offer from its birdwatching platform. Also keep an eye out for rainbow bee-eaters who flock to the reserve from northern Australia and Indonesia to nest from October – December.

Enjoy an additional 1.4km walk through native bushland to the north of the reserve where in spring, blooming wildflowers provide a big splash of colour.
