Starting from the Lakeview car park off Indian Ocean Drive, Yanchep, this walk takes you on a circuit around Loch McNess via the Wetlands Walk Trail. This beautiful, short and easy walk weaves its way around Loch McNess, one of Perth's most important coastal wetlands. The path provides exceptional views of the wetlands as you meander along the banks of the lake. The birdlife in the area is incredible, and the park is a bird watcher's delight. The understorey consists of bracken ferns, whilst the overstorey is mostly adult Jarrahs and Tuarts. Take your time and experience the soothing ambience of the place, both visually and audibly. The yanget (bullrushes) you may come across was once used for food by the Noongar people. The gravelly limestone trail is flat and well signposted, with short sections of loose sand. After finishing the loop, it's only a short walk to Chocolate Drops for a coffee or the Yanchep Inn for a refreshing ale or lunch. 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.
