This walk is alongside Woody lake at the west side of the town (On the way to Cape Le Grand) and it is worth a walk. Not special but interesting and different to elsewhere in Esperence.

This is a lakeside trail that wanders though areas affected by die-back. It is a good attempt to educate people against the spread of the disease. Very sad to see the effects on the native vegetation.
