Feature Urban Park: Lake Leschenaultia

Lake Leschenaultia is an impressive recreational lake nestled in the scenic bushland of Perth Hills.  Offering an abundance of water and land-based activities, Lake Leschenaultia is the perfect place for a family day trip or camping getaway.

Hire a canoe for a few hours or take the three-kilometre walk trail around the lake to explore the area on foot. You may get to see some of the numerous species of native birds, kangaroos, possums or echidnas that live in the area. Those with extra energy can try the 10 kilometres of off-road bush cycling trails.

The white sandy beaches make it easy to access the calm waters where children of all ages can enjoy paddling or swimming in safety. Older kids will love jumping off the lake pontoon!

Make the most of the excellent picnic and barbeque facilities or lunch at Reflections Café near the water’s edge. Then settle back on the shaded lawn while the children have fun in the playground.

This peaceful setting, surrounded by magnificent native trees and wildflowers, is ideal for overnight camping and a great base to explore Perth Hills.
