Easy track
Starting from the car park on Huntriss Road, Gwelup, this walk takes you on a circuit around Lake Gwelup. If you're in Perth, you don't need to travel much to explore this little slice of heaven. Surprisingly good views await you in this rather effortless journey. Flat, partially-paved tracks allow you to enjoy the views without worrying about falling. Besides the scenic eye candy, there are heaps of bird species and other animals living here. Dogs are allowed off-leash here, but they need to be under your supervision at all times. Also, keep an ear out for cyclists. 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.
