Loch McNess


Situated in the Yanchep National park in Western Australia 42 kilometres (26 miles) north of Perth is Loch McNess. It’s a freshwater lake  and forms part of the chain of lakes in the Swan coastal plain of Perth, Western Australia.

The lake is also known as Wagardu Lark by the Nyoongar aboriginals and along with the caves is of significant cultural importance.

Since European colonisation of the area and specifically with the building of Glouster Lodge on its shores in the ’30s it has traditionally been used for boating outings. It is still possible to hire a dingy to row on the lake.

On the morning that these images were taken the sun was still very close to the horizon and there was a slight mist hanging over the lake.
