Yange Kep Bidi

Trail Information

An image of swans on Lake Monger by Sally Wallace.The Yange Kep Bidi, (translation Wetland Trail) lies on Whadjuk Noongar land and is a picturesque meander starting at Freshwater Bay on the Swan River foreshore. Steeped in history, the trail's unique path links with the Claremont Meanders "Cobblers and Convicts Trail"; the City of Nedlands' Mount Claremont Walk" and the Town of Cambridge's proposed "Western Bush and Lakelands Trail" and it’s "Heritage Trail" on route to Lake Monger in the North. Passing through varied metropolitan areas, refreshment and coffee shops can be enjoyed on route.

The trail is not steep, and is dog friendly, making it ideal for enjoying family walks. A wide variety of wildlife, including many species of birds can be seen throughout the year at the linked lake systems, with a vast array of wildflowers blossoming between July and October.

Always wear a hat and sunscreen, and carry drinking water. The trail is mostly cycle and wheelchair accessible however it traverses a short section of Bold Park that contains uneven terrain. The first section of Herdsman Lake is also unsealed. Details on alternate options for these sectors are contained in the Yange Kep Bidi Wheelchair Access Guide.
