Lake Preston, located just north of Myalup, extends 20 kilometres in the Yalgorup National Park.
Preston is one of ten lakes in the national park that lies in the depressions between a series of coastal dunes, parallel to the coast. Lake Preston is extremely elongated and lies closest to the coast.
Take a bush walk to the lake. It’s a 2km easy out-and-back stroll along the lakeshore through a fringing thicket of swamp paperbark. This trail takes you around the edge of Lake Preston to a viewing platform at the water’s edge which allows you to see some of the waterbirds that visit the area.
The carpark for the trail can be located about 10km along Preston Beach Road, just as you enter the township. Preston Beach Road can be accessed from the Forrest Highway.
