Being Perth's largest inner city wetland, this regional park has a walking trail following the edge of the swamplands for a little over seven kilometres. The trail is a mixture of paved paths and limestone tracks. You can walk around the entire lake in just over two hours if you are keen.
Somebody dragged an old lounge to the top of a hill on the western side. If you able to climb the steep sandy slope up, you will be rewarded with a fantastic view of most of the lake.
Along the way you would see a wide variety of birdlife due to the mixture of permanent water bodies and seasonal wetlands. The vegetation changes along your walk from sedges to paper barks trees, so there is constant variety along the way.
If you don't feel like walking the entire circuit you can walk along two shorter sections, both starting from Popeye Lake on the north side. Heading west you can walk towards Settler cottage. Heading east you walk to the birdhides. Return trips for both walks are around three kilometres each.
