Lake Jualbup is another important ABORIGINAL Site. Its name Jualbup is clever. It means ‘a place where water rises in the season of spring’. The lake is very pretty.
During the winter months, when the lake fills with water we see ducklings, cygnets and tortoises. If Mum and I are quiet we see egrets or maybe a night heron and lots of corellas. In 2012 there were thirteen new ducklings and four cygnets.
In the dry summer months, as the water drains away, the lake is a bit sad and smelly. The wildlife move to wetter areas. I wish they could make the water stay there.
In 2012 the City of Subiaco built a fancy new playground to keep the kids happy while their mums and dads relax.
