Newport Lakes 1Enter via Margaret Street off Mason Street, Newport Melways 55: G3

Newport Lakes is a bushland oasis created from a former bluestone quarry and rubbish tip site, in the middle of busy Newport. The park is 33 ha in size and is a great place for a picnic with family and friends, for a leisurely walk or just to relax in a tranquil bushland setting. The lakes area of the park has been extensively revegetated using native plants, with over 200 species of plants and 85 species of birds recorded here.

A self-guided nature trail allows you to explore the lakes area at your own pace. The trail is about two kilometres in length and takes approximately 40 leisurely minutes. A brochure about the trail is available from the on-site nursery.

Getting There

The park is about one kilometre, or a 15 minute walk, west from Newport Station along Mason Street, Newport.
