Starting from the car park near Lake Leschenaultia Beach off Rosedale Road, Chidlow, this walk takes you on a circuit around the perimeter of Lake Leschenaultia. Lake Leschenaultia is a man-made freshwater lake nestled in the scenic bushland of Perth Hills. Explore the loop around the lake, and keep a lookout for the numerous species of native birds, kangaroos, possums and echidnas that live in the area. The walking trail around the lake is a flat path suitable for prams and children. This walk is also pleasurable in the warmer months as it is heavily shaded. Those with extra energy can also explore the off-road bush cycling trails. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
