Our Probus walking group met here for our weekly morning walk. The morning was fresh, but Lake Monger was in its wake-up mode, with wildlife in abundance and the park surrounding it well maintained. The morning was completed with a picnic breakfast at one of the tables provided. Toilet facilities also conveniently nearby.

Love walking around this lake. The black swans are gorgeous. Usually busy with other walkers early morning and afternoons.

Want to see a load of swans while you exercise? This is the place to go. It's generally safe during the day as there are a number of families and people walking around the lake. Please don't make the rookie mistake of feeding the swans and ducks bread... As there is a sign that informs you not to!

My friend lives near the lake and when staying with her, from the UK, I would walk around it each morning. Going over the Freeway bridge you have a magnificent view of the Perth skyline.a fabulous place to power walk or stroll along. Love it!

Lovely area to walk around the lake. No black swans they seemed to have moved on. Any ideas where I might find some in Perth?

Love doing the 3.5 km walk and the exercise stations around this beautiful lake full of wildlife. Well maintained lawns and what's left of the shady trees, plus bbqs and children's playground make it a perfect spot for a picnic.

A very pleasant place for a nice walk around the lake or a picnic. There are lots of water birds and parrots and black swans. I didn't see any turtles though.

Lake Monger impressed me. An expansive wetland on Perth's doorstep offers great delights for the serious bird watcher and tourist alike. A walking track around the lake (about three or four kms) offers exercise and viewing spots to admire the lake and resident birds. Unrushed in an hour we located 30 species of wetland birds in very significant numbers. Particularly... More

If you want to escape the city, take the free green bus to Leederville. The take street in front of the busstop and after 5 minutes you will see the lake. A few kilometers to stroll around and if you are a birder, you are in for a treat!
