Herdsman Lake is Perth’s largest inner-city wetland, with the walking trail on the water’s edge makes for an enjoyable and relaxing walk. The trail also provides a diversity of landscapes ranging from expansive views over open waters, to dense wetland rushes, bushland and open grass parklands.
Herdsman Lake is one of the few remaining water bodies in the system, most having been drained and filled to make way for development. The lake is now a popular spot for locals to exercise and recreate in, as well as an important breeding ground for waterbirds.
