This urban wetland park is a great place to visit and stroll, with camera ready, amongst wildlife. Most evident are the many species of birds, from elegant black swans through to petite and beautiful splendid wrens. Apex predators here include wonderful swam harriers and the...More

Spacious and peaceful Herdsman Lake Reserve is a lovely area to wander around. Teeming with wildlife - including black swans and tiger snakes - the lake is a great nature reserve. It’s possible to follow a mostly sealed path around the perimeter of the lake...More

Nice area with walks in partial shade, good for birding in the morning, lots of water birds, even turtles. Bring your binocular and field guide to raise those nerd points.

We essentually use this park for walks and relaxation. There is a wide array of wildlife especially black swans and ducks. I always take an opportunity to pause for a wildlife or scenery shot. Worth a visit.

If you fancy a walk with plenty of birdlife then this is for you! Plenty of hard paths that take you in and out of the picturesque surroundings. Helpful signs tell you about the fauna and warn of snakes - I didn't see one but...More

I've been to Lake Monger before so though I'd check out Herdsman Lake today. It's ok but not as nice (I thought) as Lake Monger, Hyde Park or Kings Park. Most of the walk around the lake is along the road which doesn't suit me,...More

This is a hidden gem and a half. The short loop boardwalk near the wildlife centre on the south of Herdsman's is free, and easily accessible, yet has a mysterious quiet to it. Shady, so it's good even on a hot day, and showcases the...More
