About Karri Lake Trail, Quinninup
Set deep in the heart of Karri forest, Quinninup has some great walks that provide stunning landscapes and idyllic scenes. Karri Lake is one of those walks and it takes you around the perimeter of the town’s water supply. On one side of the lake is pristine Karri forest packed full of fallen logs, many varieties of moss and a thick covering of towering Karri trees.
On the other side of the lake is a collection of local residence nestled in the Karri forest. Be on the lookout for the friendly locals, either a mob of kangaroos or a family having breakfast on their balcony. This 3.3km will keep the kids well entertained and provide a relaxing walk away from distractions of everyday life.
