Queerearrup Lake

Queerearrup Lake
Located northwest of the town, on Queerearrup Road along Douglas Road, Queerearrup lake in its former glory offered a large variety of recreational and leisure activities from skiing, swimming and picnic areas. The lake has a significant historical value to Woodanilling. However, due to falling water levels the lake is no longer used as a skiing or swimming location, although native flora and fauna can still be admired throughout the reserve. Public toilets are available on site.

 

Martup Pool & Wignedyne Nature Reserve
Martup Pool is located north of of the town on the Albany Highway, and Wingedyne Nature Reserve is found on Orchard Road. Both offer opportunities to view native wildflowers during spring. Kangaroos and bush wallabies can often be seen at dusk in the paddocks surrounding the reserve, which are also known for parrots, lorikeets, blue wrens and the crested shrike-tit.

King Rock
Located in Woodanilling’s northeast along Shackley Road, King Rock (a flora and fauna reserve) is an ideal picnic site with panoramic views of the surrounding district.
