Jolimont Lake, in Mabel Talbot Park, is only a few hundred metres in width. So you can walk right around it in five minutes.
Despite its small size, quite a lot of birds come to the lake at different times of the year – including several duck species, herons, egrets, spoonbills, coots, grebes and swans. Informative signs describe some of the birds that you may see. On a recent visit, we saw this family of Australian Wood Ducks out for a swim.
