About Lake Preston, Yalgorup NP
This easy out-and-back stroll along the lake shore passes through a fringing thicket of swamp paperbark. Part of the trail borders one of the fairways of the local golf course and as you walk along it, you may see a number of kangaroos that inhabit the area.
The lakes that characterise the park lie in the depressions between a series of coastal dunes. Reflecting this underlying structure, the ten lakes of Yalgorup National Park form three distinct lines parallel to the coast. Lake Preston is extremely elongated and lies closest to the coast. It extends 20km south to Myalup.
The carpark for the trail can be located about 10km along Preston Beach Road, just as you enter the township. Preston Beach Road can be accessed from the Forrest Highway.
