Floreat Park, WA
Perry Lakes is situated near Bold Park, between the city of Perth and the Indian Ocean. You can walk, ride your bike, try out the outdoor exercise equipment, enjoy a picnic, exercise your dog or just enjoy the ambience of being in a nature reserve.
This year both lakes are full of water. Something I haven’t seen for many a year. As far as rain goes, this has been a good winter but unfortunately hasn’t been a regular weather pattern in recent years.
Walkways can take you through around the lakes and sometimes through some very beautiful environments
As you walk around the lakes you will come across a variety of wetland birds including ducks, ebrets and white-necked heron.
On the Perry Lakes website there is a link to a Noongar story about Perry Lakes narrated by Neville Collard.
Perth has some fabulous nature reserves and this is one of them. Very family friendly!
Please do not feed the wildlife and if driving into the park be careful of turtles crossing the road (and if walking during springtime – be aware of the occasional magpie swoop).
