About Spectacles Banksia Trail, Beeliar Park
The Spectacles is 360 hectares of natural bush and wetland and is part of the chain of freshwater lakes on the Swan Coastal Plain known as Beeliar Regional Park. It is so named because it comprises two wetlands joined by a waterway, giving it the appearance of a pair of spectacles.
This walk is one of two in the area. The other is the Aboriginal Heritage Trail which circumnavigates the larger wetland.

Grace G rated Spectacles Banksia Trail, Beeliar Park a 4 out of 5
I would not recommend walking it alone. I go very often to walk my dog and am yet to actually see another person there. There is always random cars in the car park, usually with people just sitting inside (not too sure why). During Spring the track is covered in beautiful yellow wildflowers.
The track is about 2 people in width so you walk quite close to the 'bush', because of this I would make sure your dog it by your side and on a lead at all time as it is very prone to snakes during warmer months.
