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 or stand-up paddle board for a few hours, or take the three-kilometre walk trail around the lake to explore the area on foot. You may 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 ten kilometre of off-road bush cycling trails.
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 barbecue facilities, 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.
Lake Leschenaultia is located in Chidlow, just 45 minutes drive east of Perth.
