The Currimundi Lake ‘Loop the Lake’ walk traverses three habitat types providing ample opportunities to observe a diversity of species including ClimateWatch indicator species. The entire 4 km loop starts on the banks of Lake Currimundi leading to a beautiful open beach and looping back into unique coastal bushland. This is a circular route however you can choose to walk it in sections (north or south). The trail can be accessed from a number of entry points and involves crossing over on the beach – so be prepared to get your feet wet!
