Newport Lakes is a bushland oasis created from a former bluestone quarry and rubbish tip site in the middle of busy Newport. The park is a great place for a picnic with family and friends, for a leisurely walk or just to relax in a tranquil bushland setting.
The lakes area of the 33-hectare park has been extensively revegetated using native plants, with over 200 species of plants and 85 species of birds recorded here.
A self-guided nature trail allows you to explore the lakes area at your own pace. The trail is about two kilometres in length and takes approximately 40 minutes. A brochure about the trail is available from the on-site nursery.
The park is about one kilometre, or a 15-minute walk, west from Newport Station along Mason Street, Newport.
