  • This is a beautiful place for a walk and if you like wildlife you just can't beat this place . No toilets or cafe here so bring plenty to drink and lunch and do the 8km loop round the lake . This lake has the most tiger snakes in the one area in Australia so I love it for picture taking. Still very safe to walk just stay out of long grass and please keep pets on a leash. Tiger snakes are not aggressive just give them space and they will move away quickly back into longer grass. Bird life is brilliant especially in the spring but always something to see all year round.
  • You feel inside a marsh hundreds kilometres from the city. Almost fresh water. Hence, the environment, flora and fauna are different from that around Swan River and the kings park
