About Lake Monger
This much loved Perth area has a long history of use since European settlement, but the area is also of cultural and historical significance to the first Australians and is part of the Whadjuk Trail network which aims to help those visiting today to gain a unique understanding and appreciation of the areas that were tradionally used by the Noongar people.
A 3.5km loop trail helps you to discover the beauty of the lake and surrounds, with several intereptive plaques providing insights from a historical perspective. Impressive views of Perth city can be experienced from the Dodd Street end of the walk.

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.
