Perth 2010 DAY 2: Kings Park Part 3- The Lotterywest Federation Walkway, Lakeview Lawn

The Lotterywest Federation Walkway is an enjoyable walk through the tree tops and to admire the lovely view from the Mount Eliza lookout as well.

The walk is an enjoyable and relaxing journey through the shady trees covering parts of the bridges erected on the tree tops (also known as tree top walk).
The bridge walkway is a combination of steel and glass bridges forming the canopy walk over the eucalypt trees.

The bridges are elevated a good 52m above the grounds and last about 620m.

Along the walk, one can view the Beedawong; a meeting area named by the aborigines (Nyoongar), which means celebration or meeting area.

Before reaching the bridge, one will not miss the Mount Eliza lookout point which offers an excellent and spectacular view of the Swan River and also the Canning River; and the grand meeting point of the two rivers.

There is a photographic guide board to enlighten one on the points to look out for while taking in the picturesque view.

A short journey from the Synergy Parkland is the Lakeview Lawn which is a beautifully crafted lake with attractive fountains and ducks swimming peacefully.

This is also a perfect venue for picnics and family gathering area.

These lovely ducks were really adorable; the mother duck was protective of her ducklings. As soon as we approached the edge of the lake, the mother duck immediately ushered her ducklings away from us.

A very peaceful and serene surrounding, and one can find oneself mesmerized by the beauty of nature, I know I did =)
