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

Herdsman Lake is a great spot to take a walk and enjoy all the birdlife along the way. Also a good spot for a picnic.

Although it has some well presented walks this park is underdeveloped in terms of people facilities Very good for bird watching, particular water fowl, & casual walks

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.

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
