Hills rain del­uge

Hills Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

OVER­FLOW­ING lakes and wa­ter­falls are ex­pected to at­tract record num­bers of vis­i­tors to the Perth Hills as the wave of wet weather rolls into the week­end. An abun­dance of re­serves, parks, trails and spec­tac­u­lar forests lie to the east of the city, stretch­ing across the Shire of Mundaring into the Avon Val­ley and down to the City of Kala­munda. Among the jew­els in the crown is Lake Leschenaultia, the rail­way dam that be­came a recre­ational lake and holds about 520 mil­lion litres of wa­ter. En­try is free to the 168ha park with trails, camp­ing and week­end cafe open all year. Vis­i­tors are en­cour­aged to bring kayaks at this time of year when ca­noe hire is not avail­able. De­tails at http://www. trailtalk.com.au. Our pho­tog­ra­pher Bruce Hunt took these pic­tures of the over­flow­ing lake in Chidlow ear­lier this week.
