Interesting place to visit if you do have the time you can go on several walks one goes right around the Lake and picnic tables to enjoy your snack or packed lunch.

Sunrise at the lake is beautiful. I went to the lake twice. Once at sunrise and another at sunset. Sunset at the lake is quite chilly. I spotted a group of wild kangaroos hopping in a distance. What a beautiful sight.

Situated just a short distance from Cervantes. This small lake has a good board walk around it, a nice walk and a look at the Stromatolites, very interesting.

We walked around the lake on the boardwalk then over to the look out point. There are lovely views of the beach from here. From there you can descend to the beach and into Cervantes, almost completing a circular walk. You can see the stromatolites...More

Learn a few new things but really this is not an attraction. It will take you 15 mn to walk around the lake and 2 mn to watch the stromatolites. If you keep going on the dirt road there is a nice lookout there and...More

This little place is off the beaten path, however it is well worth the visit. It has great signage, clean and easy to navigate pathways plus great education signs.

I must say this remarkable Thetis Lake is an opportunity not to be missed when you come to Perth! Really enjoy the view and sunset scenery. Awesome! Really must come to experience and worth it 😍

Just a short drive from Cervantes, this is a small lake where one of the oldest lifeforms on Earth can be found. The walk to the lake is on a slightly raised walkway through lovely bush flora. We were there on a slightly cloudy day...More

Went to Lake Thetis after a lobster lunch at the Lobster Shack. Just a 10-minute drive away. The road is not tarred, so be ready for some bone-shaking, although it was not a long stretch. Parking and entrance is free and you can visit anytime....More
