WELCOME TO HERDSMAN LAKE DISCOVERY CENTRE
Nature Based Experiences for Everyone!
Discover a beautiful wetland just minutes from Perth city and meet the wildlife that call it home. The Herdsman Lake Discovery Centre is a unique place for school groups, community groups and the public to reconnect with nature.
Noogenboro (Herdsman Lake) is located within Mooro Nyoongar Boodja – Mooro people’s land, which is part of the greater Wadjak Nyoongar area. We acknowledge the traditional Aboriginal owners of the land. We also recognise the unique connection between the Nyoongar people and Country, their valued contribution to local community and cultural life, and their relationship with Noogenboro.
The Herdsman Lake Discovery Centre is operated by WA Gould League, a local not-for-profit organisation. All proceeds contribute to ongoing environmental education for all.
