Starting from the car park next to the Luisini Winery on Lakeway Drive, Kingsley, this walk takes you on a circuit around Lake Goollelal. The Lake Goollelal Loop is a 4.5 km paved path around this permanent lake. The shared-use path is great for walking and cycling and offers a fabulous natural bushland setting in the midst of suburbia. The lake is surrounded by remnants of fringing paperbark woodland, Jarrah, Marri and Banksia open woodland and scattered Tuart. Many of the trees away from the banks of the lake are not native to the area, but a few large Flooded Gum and Swamp Paperbark trees give you a glimpse of how the vegetation was like back in the day. One of the main features of a walk around Lake Goollelal is the abundant birdlife. The lake, although shallow by world standards, is relatively deep compared with other lakes on the Swan Coastal Plain, and therefore is a haven for waterbirds even during dry summers. The area is also home to oblong turtles and native water rats. There's an observation platform on the western side of the lake where you can view many waterbirds. On the eastern side, there's a plaque commemorating the location of Wesley Mission farm. Reverend John Smithies built this farm in 1844 for Aboriginal people to acquire agricultural skills if they'd like to do so. Nearby is the historic Luisini Winery, which is currently being redeveloped as an educational and heritage facility by the National Trust. You can commence the loop walk from multiple different points and return to your starting location. It is a shared path, giving you the option to cycle. Some parts of the walk are close to busy roads. Keep an eye out for snakes in the warm weather. 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.

Starting from the car park opposite Burns Beach Cafe at the end of Ocean Parade, Burns Beach, this walk takes you past Iluka Foreshore Reserve and the Ocean Reef Boat Harbour, to Mullaloo Beach and back. From Burns Beach, a multi-use pathway takes you through the dunes and along the rocky cliffs of Perth's coastline. There are several small beaches, lookouts, parks, picnic areas, and rest stops along the way. Keep an eye out for rare bird species, sea lions, dolphins and rays and many more animals. Interpretive signs along the way provide insights into the native flora, fauna and history of the area. This walk can either be fully completed in a day or divided into smaller sections. Head south from Burns Beach towards Iluka Foreshore Park. If you prefer to walk or cycle further, a round trip to Ocean Reef Marina or even Mullaloo Beach will certainly give you a challenge. The multi-use pathway is popular with walkers, joggers and cyclists, so it's important to keep left and be aware of any overtaking bicycles. The gradient is a little hilly, but easy enough if you take it at your own pace. Mornings are a great time to walk here, before the sea breeze comes in, although an evening walk can be rewarded with a beautiful sunset. Walk the coastal path, relax on the white sand beaches, barbecue in the grassed parks, or just sit atop the limestone cliffs and enjoy a spectacular Indian Ocean sunset. 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.

Starting from the Neil Hawkins Park Carpark on Boas Avenue, Joondalup, this walk takes you on a circuit around Lake Joondalup. Lake Joondalup is Perth's largest freshwater lake and is part of Yellagonga Regional Park. The Lake Joondalup Circuit is a well-developed family-friendly path starting from the historic site of Neil Hawkins Park, situated only a short stroll away from the Joondalup City Centre. The well-maintained park has public toilets, barbecues, picnic tables and a children's play area. It is a lovely spot for a family picnic or barbecue. You can come across kangaroos and long-necked turtles along with some rare bird species whilst pivoting around the lake. The loop also takes in children's playgrounds, picnic spots, the local golf course, a boardwalk and an observation tower. Lake views from Neil Hawkins Park are stunning, but for most of the way the lake is hidden by overgrown trees and vegetation. The western side of the lake is the most scenic as the path is within natural settings, unlike the suburban roads and grassy parkland on the eastern side. The flat shared-use path is popular with walkers, joggers and cyclists, with a hard surface throughout the entire loop. Keep an eye out for snakes along the section between Scenic Drive Park, Rotary Park and Lake Joondalup Park, where there are multiple snake warning signs. This could be a difficult walk in the summer months as there is not a lot of shade available. 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.
