Bluff Lookout, Lake Argyle
1 h 30 min to 2 h
Starting from the Lake Argyle Resort on Lake Argyle Road, Lake Argyle, this walk takes you to the Bluff Lookout and back via the Bluff Walk Trail. Lake Argyle is a freshwater lake set amidst a gorgeous hilly landscape. Filled with wildlife and colourful flora, this place is a safe haven for many. It's stunningly picturesque, as the reddish cliffs are sharply cut by the dark blue of the water from below and the light blue of the sky above. There are multiple bushwalks starting near the resort that allow you to explore the fauna and history of the region. One of them is the Bluff Walk Trail, which takes you around the cove to the 'Bluff', an excellent lookout over the lake and the resort. There's a lot to see along the way, and once you get to the lookout, the view is amazing. Look out for the interesting wildlife you may see in the area, including birds, marsupials, reptiles, insects and maybe even an echidna. There is very little shade on this walk, so it's best to walk in the early morning to beat the heat. Long trousers are recommended as the spinifex grass can be scratchy against your legs. The trail is well signposted, so there's very little chance of getting lost. Maps are provided by reception when you check-in, and the staff are happy to answer any questions. 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.
