EVERY KID IN A PARK TRAIL
In conjunction with City of Stirling, Nature Play WA have created the following trail for everyone, we hope you enjoy!
Herdsman Lake Regional Park is the perfect place to walk, ride and relax amid the hustle and bustle of the city. And, the lush, green landscape makes for an enjoyable visit all year round!
There are plenty of paths and trails to explore – some are hidden in pockets of paperbark forest, while others stretch all the way around the lake.
While you adventure around the park, keep an eye out for the spectacular assortment of birds – there are over 100 species here! Visit at the right time of year and you’re likely to spot a long-necked turtle looking for somewhere to lay its eggs – see our Biodiversity section for more information!
If you’d prefer to take it slow, set up a picnic at one of many spots beside the water or under the shady trees, and simply enjoy Herdsman’s tranquility. Pay a visit to the Herdsman Lake Discovery Centre on Saturdays between 9am and 2pm ($5 entry fee) to grab a coffee, see some native animal exhibits and find out what activities they’re running (nature walks, animal feeding and keeper talks, just to name a few).
Entry to this park is free, and dogs are allowed but must be kept on a lead.
Tiger snakes are regularly spotted at Herdsman Lake Regional Park. For more information, check out the Parks and Wildlife Guide to Dealing with Snakes.
