Description

The $37 million Champion Lakes Regatta Centre is a world-class venue for rowing, canoeing, dragon boating, triathlon events and other national and international water sport competitions.

With a 55 hectare lake, 2000 metre international standard rowing course, warm up lake, boat shed storage area and clubhouse, the centre is home to a number of sporting groups and hosts national and international competitions.

Since opening in April 2007, the centre has hosted Dragon Boat, Kayaking, Rowing and Radio Sailing National Championships as well as State Championships in Rowing, Kayaking, Outrigger Canoes, and Radio Sailing. Champion Lakes is also home to Western Australia's 'Head of the River' competitions.

There are approximately 11kms of sealed pathways within the venue for pedestrian and cycle use.

Distance around the entire perimeter of Champion Lakes on the Event Path is 5 kms.

Distance between the Pedestrian and Traffic Bridge around the perimeter of the Warm up Lake on the Event and Pedestrian Paths is 1.8 kms.

The Champion Lakes Regatta Centre has been designed with the community in mind. The community has access to a number of walking and cycling paths, open water areas for canoeing and boating and a 'white-sand' beach for public swimming near Henley Drive.

The Valley Loop Trail

A pleasant walk around the Lesmurdie falls, offering sweeping views across the hills facing out towards the city.

  • Activity:Bush Walking
  • Type:Sites & Trails
  • Suited For:Dog-friendly

Details

  • Open Days:Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday,Public Holidays,School holidays

Description

Walking down the hill, the trail follows the brook until it reaches a bridge at the top of the falls. A lookout allows you to view the falls and, on a clear day, the flat land of the coastal plain sweeps the eye out over Perth city to Rottnest Island on the western horizon. If you're feeling energetic, follow the trail down to the picnic area at the base of the hills. From here a short trail leads to the base of the falls. This is more like a waterfall in New Zealand than in Perth and is quite unique to the region.  The lush vegetation grows where the bubbling brook hits the base of the waterfall.
