Starting from the Bibra Lake Reserve Carpark on Progress Drive, Bibra Lake, this walk takes you on a circuit around the perimeter of Bibra Lake. Bibra Lake Reserve is a great place for a range of outdoor activities, as there is a 6km cycle and walking path around the whole lake, with clear markings all the way around. The reserve has a thriving population of ducks, swamp hens, swans and many other birds. On the western side of the lake, a bird hide on a floating pontoon provides great bird watching opportunities in a tranquil setting. There is also a short jetty to walk along, which has nice views over the lake. Shaded picnic areas, barbecues, toilets and change rooms are available for those wanting to spend more time here. Drinking fountains and toilets can be found on both sides of the lake. There's a great adventure playground for the children, with features and designs that draw on local wildlife, fauna and aboriginal heritage. There is also a food van parked near the playground selling various cuisines, drinks, ice cream and coffee. The cement path is suitable for wheelchairs and prams due to it having mild slopes rather than steps. All of the facilities have been designed to be fully accessible to people with a disability. Dogs on a lead are welcome in the reserve, but are not permitted inside the fenced area of the playground. Keep an eye out for your children and pets at all times, as some sections of the track are next to the road. 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.
