  • Took a family drive out to Lake Leschenaultia the other weekend. Saw lots of lovely wildflowers and a few aquatic birds. It was largely very pleasant. You can hire canoes there and swim in the lake. W...  more »

  • Great place for a walk with beautiful natural settings. It's winter, so not much people about and cafe only opens the weekends. With the rains, the lake was nice and full.  more »

  • Fantastic day trip from Perth comes highly recommended. A gentle accessible 3.6km return walk around the lake is complemented by a range of wildflowers and swimming beaches. There are ample bbqs, a tearoom with coffee and lunches and canoe hire ($14). Great for an afternoon family event. Plenty of parking, check the entrance road as Google maps can redirect the wrong way!
  • Lake Leschenaultia is a very pleasant alternative for campers. Only just over an hour out of Perth, it is a man-made lake constructed in 1897. It supplied water to steam trains for almost 50 years and since 1949 it has been used as a recreation area where many locals learned to swim. There were no public swimming pools available before the 1960s. Entry fee is free, but costs apply for camping and canoe hire. Swimming is popular, with a lovely beach and a pontoon to rest on after a hard swim! Bush walking and cycling trails abound and bird watching, flower spotting and other natural pursuits are all at your offering. The cafeteria and toilets makes it easy camping and there are barbecues, picnic areas, grassed areas and a camp ground with camp kitchen. Since early in 2007, Lake Leschenaultia has been the venue for the monthly local market. Unfortunately no dogs or fishing are allowed.
  • Lovely picnic spot in Perths Foothills. Originally created to service the WA Government Railways, steam locomotives with water, this lake is man made. Worth a look and a dip on a hot day. Beware of leeches and drop bears... !!!
  • Awesome spot good for picnics , a swim and camping 40 to 50 mins drive from perth city
  • Great place for family fun..
