Para Wirra Lake Discovery Loop
Starting from the Lake car park at the end of Lake Road West, Yattalunga, this walk takes you on a circuit around the Lake within Para Wirra Conservation Park via the Lake Discovery Loop. This short and easy loop meanders around the lake in the central section of Para Wirra Conservation Park, one of the park's most popular areas, located near the West Gate entrance. Along the way, scenic views over the lake's calm water reflect the surrounding bushland. A wide variety of waterbirds and bush birds can be seen around the lake, making it an excellent spot for birdwatching. The trail is popular among families with children. Its compact surface makes it suitable for people of all abilities, including those with limited mobility. Cycling is also permitted on this trail. Picnic tables and barbecue facilities are available near the trailhead, set in natural bushland overlooking the lake. This loop consists of wide, mostly flat shared-use trails with compacted gravel surfaces, suitable for all ages and fitness levels, as well as prams and wheelchairs. 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.
