Booragoon Lake was once part of an Aboriginal transport route passing through many of the freshwater lakes south of the Swan River. Booragoon is a Nyoongah word that refers to the lower reaches of the Canning River. The area supports a variety of flora and fauna including two species of frogs, long-necked tortoises and more than forty species of birds, the Sacred Ibis being abundant. Walkers can roam around the lake and across a wooden path leading to an observation gazebo that overlooks the lake, providing a good vantage point to view the wildlife.
