Here’s a new place to us: Cooloongup Lake. We discovered it by looking on Google Maps for somewhere to explore. It’s gorgeous! Not far from Rockingham, and quiet once you get onto the trails: we only saw two other people.
We parked off Mandurah Road and explored to the north of the lake. We ran out of time to walk more of the trail, and so we will have to return! The bush is dreamy and expansive, and as the sun went down we shivered in the cold and hurried back through the dirt paths to our car.
