Starting from the car park on President Street, Kewdale, this walk takes you on a circuit around the perimeter of Tomato Lake via the Tomato Lake Walk Trail. The lake is the centrepiece of Tomato Lake Reserve, a vibrant nature sanctuary containing wetlands, remnant vegetation and grassy parklands. The lake and wetlands support a wide variety of birdlife, frogs and long-necked tortoises, and the island in the lake provides a breeding area for waterbirds. Tomato Lake is bisected by a boardwalk with a gazebo and circumnavigated by a dual-use pathway, perfect for a relaxing stroll or run around the lake. The western side offers glimpses of the lake through the trees, while the eastern side has a more open view of the lake. The path is flat and paved, making it accessible for prams and wheelchairs and suitable for kids to ride scooters or bikes. Facilities include toilets, BBQs, picnic tables and water stations alongside open grassed areas, as well as three play areas plus a basketball court and a fitness park with exercise equipment. Visitors can learn about the history and wildlife of Tomato Lake via the signboards that are dotted throughout the park. The walk can be shortened by taking the boardwalk through to the gazebo, which is a great spot for bird watching and also a popular wedding venue. As it can be very busy at weekends, especially in the wedding season, it is best to visit midweek early in the morning or an hour before sundown. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
