A Walk on Lake Walyungup

Perth, Western Australia

The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started and finished at Warnbro Train Station (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 12.8km (8.0mi) in about 3.5hr
  • Grade: Easy. Flat as a tack and you can walk around for as long as you wish. I did try to circumnavigate the main body of water but couldn't find a way around the east side of the lake (the scrub was too thick). I probably could have bush bashed but didn't feel like coming across some snake friends. You could probably just walk along Mandurah road but that would be boring, so I just backtracked along the western side of the lake. Also note, I visited after a long period without substantial rain. Could be very different after a downpour. There is zero shade on this walk so bring a hat.
  • Date Walked: 14th of April 2018

The Story

Hiking a dried-out lake bed feels like something from the post-apocalyptic wastelands of Mad Max or that 2Pac music video for California Love.
