A good place for the Southwestern snake-necked turtle
May 2021
We visited lake Monger with the dream to see a Southwestern snake-necked turtle (Chelodina colliei). We parked in one of the car parks along Lake Monger Drive on the Southern part of the lake. There, we saw many ducks in the grass and in the lake. The trail around the lake divides in two at the south-east corner of the lake, separating the cycle path from the naturalistic one. The nature trail runs closer to the lake shore and dogs are not allowed on it. The double path is present only on the eastern side of the lake and there are two piers immediately after the start and just before the end. Spending some time looking at the water where the shadow of the jetty allowed us to see deeply, we saw our first turtle. Even if the turtle remained under the pier for long time it was not easy to take a picture of this elusive reptile. Along the west side of the lake there is only one track and therefore the presence of cyclists makes bird watching more difficult. On this side of the lake the water depth is less and several species of water birds can be easily seen due to the scarce vegetation. The total loop is reported to be 3.5 km, a very easy and pleasant walking for everybody.

Abode of the Dreamtime serpent
May 2021
Lake Monger is part of an urban wetland; most other lakes and wetlands in the Perth area were drained for agriculture and urban development. Lake Monger is 5 km (3 miles) from the Perth CBD, along the Mitchell Freeway. Lake Monger is connected to the Dreamtime myth of the Wagyl, a serpent that the Noongar people associate with the Swan River area. The Noongar are Aboriginal people who occupied the entire South-west of Western Australia before white settlement. Lake Monger is 70 ha (170 acres) in area; it abuts the suburbs of Wembley, Leaderville and Glendalough. Lake Monger is popular with tourists; bird-watchers will find many native birds. It's also well-known for walking and cycling. The lake has BBQs; parking is usually adequate. The area is known as the Lake Monger Reserve.

We​ often​ walk​ around​ this​ lake​ as​ we​ live​ nearby.
Its​ an​ easy​ but​ interesting​ walk​ with​ lots​ of​ Wild​ life​ to​ see​ on​ the​ way.​ I​ would​ say​ its​ about​ 4-5​ klms​ around​ with​ cool​ breeze in​ summer.

Walking Spot
Feb 2020 • Couples
We largely go to Lake Monger to walk our dog. Its a fantastic walking path for pedestrian and cycle use. There is also an inner walking path in some places where bikes and dogs aren't allowed.

Unfortunately the water level was well below what I would normally see due to a hot Perth summer but still a beautiful area for wildlife.

Always a great place for a stroll.

Close to the city, Lake Monger is surrounded by a well maintained park, great for a picnic or relaxation. Good running track around the lake, kids playground and amenities. Plenty of birds. Not good for swimming die to algae.

Alot of facilities from BBQ’s to free drinking Water to Parking to Toilets etc are available in the park which allow you to enjoy without any worry. All you need is pack your picnic stuff.

Swimming and fishing not allowed
