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.
