A great little walk or ride around this picturesque Lake.
Look & listen for the fabulous flora & fauna.
Dogs MUST be leashed, Tiger Snakes & Dugites inhabit this suburban parkland.

If you live nearby, this may be a great walk. It’s certainly not worth driving to. Decent stretches along main highways, majority along suburban roads. Small sections where you feel like you’re near nature.

I love this walk. An abundance of bird life. Extra special at dusk.

Dogs must be on a lead not just 'under control' as at other parks. Wardens are regularly patrolling and handing out fines. Lots of cyclists. An enjoyable walk but I've been put off because of the rules.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
